Classic White Cake Recipe – Tasting Table

Restaurant News

Don’t be intimidated by the number of bowls in this photo; the ingredients you need to make this cake (and its frosting) are kitchen staples you probably have on hand already. You’ll need several sticks of butter, the whites from five eggs (ideally room-temperature eggs), flour, baking powder, vanilla extract, powdered sugar and granulated sugar, whole milk, salt, and a neutral oil like canola or vegetable. You’ll also need two 8-inch round cake pans, cooking spray, and some parchment paper.

So, why egg whites? “Any ingredient you put in a cake it can alter the color of it,” Morone explains. “Because this cake is supposed to be white, you only want to use the egg whites, because the egg yolks will make the cake more of a yellow color.”
