Le Food Snob


This recipe will be your new go-to recipe if you want a super-moist white cake. It’s so moist, you can eat it without frosting. Which is what I did with one of the ‘domes’ on one of my layers. Ate the entire thing while spreading frosting between the layers! Amazing how fast cake can disappear while you’re concentrating on spreading the frosting…


  • 12 T. butter, softened
  • 1 1/2 c. sugar
  • 2 1/2 c. flour
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 8 large egg whites (1 c.)
  • 1 c. buttermilk
  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 2 (9-inch) diameter or 9 x 9 x 1 1/2-inch deep layer pans, buttered and bottoms lined with parchment or waxed paper


  1. Set a rack at the middle level of the oven and preheat to 350 degrees.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, beat butter and sugar for about 5 minutes, until light and fluffy.
  3. Stir together flour, baking powder and soda and salt. Set aside. Combine egg whites, buttermilk and vanilla. Add 1/3 of the flour mixture to butter mixture then add half the milk mixture.
  4. Continue to alternate beginning and ending with flour mixture. Scrape bowl and beater often. Pour batter into prepared pans. Bake cakes about 25 to 30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center emerges clean.
  5. Cool in pan on a rack for 5 minutes, then turn out onto a rack, remove paper and let cool completely.

This is a small cake for my standards. And I blame my standards on the Cheesecake Factory, where I worked for three years and where I got used to plates that held portions that were bigger than my head and tall cakes made with six layers. When you’re used to eating a six-layer cake, four layers (especially four thin layers), is just not that impressive. That being said, if I was really trying to impress or … selling this cake … I would multiply the recipe by 1 and a half and make it a six-layer cake. I filled the layers with Brown Butter Butterscotch Buttercream Frosting and also did an all-over very thin layer of frosting. Then did a thick layer of Brown Butter Buttercream Frosting on top.

I made one of my friends eat a piece of cake even though white cake and butterscotch aren’t really his favorite flavors. And after I made him eat a piece, he said, That was #$%^@*$, so when are you going pro?

Try this cake! You’ll love it.
