If you’ve ever wanted to make a perfect cake but felt intimidated by the process, you’re not alone. Making a cake from scratch can seem like a daunting task, but with the right tools, ingredients, and instructions, you can make a delicious and easy cake in no time.

To get started, you’ll need the following ingredients:

-3 cups all-purpose flour
-2 teaspoons baking powder
-1 teaspoon baking soda
-1/2 teaspoon salt
-1 cup unsalted butter, melted
-2 cups white sugar
-4 eggs
-1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
-1 cup buttermilk

Once you have all of your ingredients gathered, it’s time to get started. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and grease and flour a 9-inch round cake pan.

In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. In a separate bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Then, add the eggs one at a time, mixing well after each addition. Add the vanilla extract and mix until combined.

Alternate adding the dry ingredients and the buttermilk to the creamed mixture. Start with the dry ingredients, mixing until just combined, then add the buttermilk and mix until just combined.

Pour the batter into the prepared cake pan and bake for 30-35 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean.

Once the cake is finished baking, let it cool in the pan for 10 minutes before transferring it to a wire rack to cool completely.

Once the cake has cooled, it’s time to decorate! You can use your favorite frosting or glaze to top the cake. If you’re feeling creative, you can even add sprinkles, chocolate chips, or chopped nuts.

And there you have it! With just a few simple steps, you’ve made a delicious and easy cake that’s sure to impress your friends and family. Enjoy!
