Vanilla Loaf Cake

Servings :

Total Time:

10 slices

55 minutes


Vanilla Cake flour sugar caster or granulated baking powder butter eggs vanilla bean paste or vanilla extract Vanilla Buttercream (optional) unsalted butter not Stork! icing sugar powdered sugar cream or whole milk more, if needed vanilla bean paste or vanilla extract sprinkles to decorate

Step 1

Measure the flour, sugar and baking powder into a mixing bowl and stir to combine. Add the remaining ingredients – butter, eggs and vanilla bean paste and beat on low speed using an electric hand mixer (or a stand mixer).

Step 2

Increase the speed once the ingredients have combined, scraping the bottom and sides of your bowl halfway. Easy peasy!!

Step 3

Spoon the batter into a lined 450g (1lb) loaf tin (I use loaf tin liners for ease) and level. Bake for 50 minutes (or up to an hour) until the cake is well risen and springy to the touch. A skewer inserted in the centre should come out clean.

Step 4

Serve plain, as soon as it has cooled down a little or cool completely and add frosting and loads of sprinkles!
