Sorry, ombre rainbow cakes, white cake is a timeless classic. A really great, tried and true recipe will come in handy again and again—much like your go-to little black dress.
Author of The Fearless Baker Erin McDowell has a special place in her heart for this ultimate white cake.
“In the past, my mom has freely admitted that part of the reason she attends weddings is that after the vows and photo ops and buffet, she might be served white cake,” McDowell said. “You know the kind—the really light, fluffy cake with a hint of almond and a thin layer of super sweet white frosting. So I developed this recipe for her.”
The simple two-layer cake is pretty enough for a special occasion, but not so fancy or huge that it couldn’t be made just because.
