vanilla cake Jaime Torres

Ingredients

1½ c. sifted cake flour.

1½ tsp. baking powder.

¼ tsp. salt.

½ c. unsalted butter.

1 c. sugar.

2 large eggs.

½ tsp. vanilla extract.

½ c. whole milk.

step 1. Heat the oven to 400 degrees F. Lightly coat an 8-inch cake pan with butter and dust with all-purpose flour. Sift the cake flour, baking powder, and salt into a large mixing bowl.

step 2. Beat in the butter one heaping 1/4 teaspoonful at a time, using an electric mixer set on low speed, until the mixture resembles coarse sand. Beat in the sugar a tablespoon at a time, until the mixture resembles fine damp sand. Beat in the eggs one at a time. Add the vanilla and milk, and beat on medium-high, just until blended. Do not over beat.

step 3. Pour into the prepared pan and bake until a wooden skewer inserted in the center comes out clean — 30 to 35 minutes. Cool cake in the pan on a wire rack for 5 minutes.

step 4. take out the cake and cool completely. Ice with Browned-Butter Glaze.
