Ingredients

12 portion(s)

Cake Batter

  • 2 1/4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 165 grams vegetable oil
  • 250 grams Milk
  • 375 grams plain flour
  • 4 eggs
  • 450 grams caster sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
5

Recipe's preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 170 degrees C. Line an 8 inch round cake tin with baking paper (base and sides).

     

  2. Insert your Butterfly whisk into your TM and add eggs and caster sugar to your bowl.  Beat for 30 seconds on speed 3.

     

  3. Add the remaining ingredients (flour, milk, oil, baking powder and vanilla) and beat for 20 seconds on speed 3 - just until the batter is smooth and creamy - don't overbeat!

     

  4. Pour batter into prepared baking tin and bake for 60-75 minutes or until cooked through. Keep checking from 60 minutes as each oven is different.  My oven takes approx. 75 minutes.

Tip

This is such an easy recipe and like the title says - will never fail!  I have a cake business and this is my go-to vanilla cake recipe.  I've converted it for the Thermomix!

 

Beautiful smothered with ganache while still warm out of the oven!

 

You could also split this batter over two tins and they would take a shorter amount of time to cook.

    I also reduced the sugar to 300gm as I had sweet icing to go on top. The reduced sugar seemed to result in a better balanced cake.
    I will make it again

    This is my favourite receipe and I use it all the time.

    I have used 1/4 vanilla essence then added 6 drops of lemon Doterra essential oil and it was a big hit with everyone.

    I have also used Wild Orange essential oil and was delightful.

    Thank you

    Reduced the sugar to 300g but only because I’m not a sweet tooth. Made 12 cup cakes & put the rest in a medium loaf tin & filled with jam & cream. Will use this recipe every time.
    Thanks for sharing.

    Submitted by caker on 18. September 2017 - 21:55.

    I've made this cake quite a few times now, by adding higher sugar results in a fluffy texture, however i have played around with the recipe and wanted to create a white chocolate vanilla cake that's not dense like a white chocolate mud cake.
    This recipe holds fondant quite well.
    The only changes i made was to cut down the sugar by 185g and used 300g white chocolate melted with the oil in the microwave and let it cool before adding it in with the flours....
    This is my favourite recipe to use including rainbow layers.....

    This is a great recipe. Substituted with premium spelt flour and rapadura sugar, and baked in a number 4 tin (time was less but don't recall how long, just kept an eye on it from 30 mins). Was lovely and moist!

  • Is the sugar content correct

    Submitted by GidgetC on 8. December 2013 - 23:18.

    Is the sugar content correct at 450g? Just seems like quite a lot of sugar... is it suppose to be 150g?
