Vanilla Buttermilk Cake with Chocolate-Buttermilk Frosting
 
Makes 1 (9-inch) cake
Ingredients
  • ½ cup (113 grams) unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup (200 grams) granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs (100 grams)
  • ½ teaspoon (2 grams) vanilla extract
  • 1⅓ cups (167 grams) all-purpose flour
  • 1¼ teaspoons (6.25 grams) baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ½ cup (120 grams) whole buttermilk
  • Chocolate-Buttermilk Frosting (recipe follows)
  • Garnish: multicolored sprinkles
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C). Spray a 9-inch round cake pan with baking spray with flour.
  2. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat butter and sugar at medium speed until fluffy, 3 to 4 minutes, stopping to scrape sides of bowl. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in vanilla.
  3. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, and salt. Reduce mixer speed to low. Gradually add flour mixture to butter mixture alternately with buttermilk, beginning and ending with flour mixture, beating just until combined after each addition. Spoon batter into prepared pan.
  4. Bake until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean, 30 to 35 minutes. Let cool in pan for 10 minutes. Remove from pan, and let cool completely on a wire rack. Spread with Chocolate-Buttermilk Frosting. Garnish with sprinkles, if desired.
