30 Second Vanilla Butter Cake

This is a great basic cake recipe for decorating! A base for drip cakes, naked cakes, rainbow/ombre layer cakes, buttercream, fondant, or even dusted with icing sugar!! This is quick, easy, and is a super light and fluffy butter cake which is nice and firm for decorating. I have also made this into an Easy Watermelon Cake!

The cornflour in the recipe adds to a fluffier, lighter texture. In comparison to previous butter cake recipes I used in the past, the crumbs are much bigger and it can taste quite heavy. This is a lot lighter with finer crumbs which makes it taste (and is quick to make) like a ‘packet mix’ kind of cake!

Add ingredients to bowl. 
 
 
Mix – 30 seconds/Speed 6.
Pour and spread into lined baking tin.
 
Bake for 35 minutes or until skewer comes out crumb free.
 
Cool before taking out of tin and decorating.
 

This cake is decorated with 1 1/2 batches of my Perfect Buttercream Icing using a Russian rose piping tip.
