What you will need:
· Pan of 13 X 7 inches
· Vanilla extract
· Liquid milk
· Electric mixer
What you should do:
Step 1: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. You need to use oil to cover the bottom of the pan where you will pour the cake batter later on. Take a pan that is 13 inch by 7 inch and round in shape. Sprinkle some flour on it. If you are not greasing it, it will become hard to get the cake off the base of the pan once it is baked in the oven.
Step 2: Get another large bowl and pour sugar, cake flour, salt, shortening (A common fat used in cookie dough or pastry), vanilla extract and milk.
Step 3: Set the electric mixer to a great velocity and let them blend for two and half minutes. Every now and then, you must get the mixture in place by utilizing a wooden spoon to gather the batter. Add egg whites.
Step 4: Check for the right consistency. After it has the right texture, get it on the pan. Bake it for 45 minutes and check by inserting a toothpick in the middle of the cake. Make sure you do not burn yourself with the hot oven.
Step 5: Let it cool for 15 minutes and put in onto a wire rack. Wait for one more hour and use a knife to cut it off from the pan. Repeat the same process for another piece of vanilla cake. Put it on top of the one you made before. Put icing in the middle of the two layers and cover the whole cake with frosting of white color.
• Before you start, make sure you have all the ingredients and you are sure what amount you are using. Since, there is no fixed amount in this recipe, you can go with your wish for example, if you like it sweet add more than one cup of sugar and if you do not want it to be too sweet add just one cup.
• Do not add too much salt unintentionally or on purpose because it will ruin the taste.
• Since, it is a vanilla cake, go with icing of white color and you can decorate with small cherries.
