I wanted another white cake recipe to have with fresh berries but this time I wanted to use real butter. This can be difficult when making a white cake as the butter tends to make things crumbly. So, I added in some cream cheese to help keep the cake together and the flavor of course goes well with berries.
This is by far the best white cake I have made.
(Note: This is a less stable cake due to the butter content. If you want to use it for carving or stacking I would replace half of the butter with oil to make it more stable.)
Best White Cake
- 1/2 cup softened butter
- 1/2 large pkg cream cheese softened-equal to 125 grams
- 1 and 1/4 cup white sugar
- 1/2 cup plain yogurt
- 4 tsp vanilla
Mix well and in a separate bowl sift dry ingredients:
- 2 and 2/3 cup flour
- 4 tbsp cornstarch
- 1 and 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 3/4 tsp baking soda
- 3/4 tsp salt
Gradually alternate the dry ingredients to the batter with:
- 1 and 1/4 cup milk mixed with 1 tsp vinegar
Bake at 350 degrees F for approximately 35-40 mins in a 9 by 13 pan.
