Ingredients

For the cake:

  • 2 1/2 cups cake flour
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/4 cups whole milk, at room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon almond extract
  • 4 large egg whites, at room temperature
  • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil

For the frosting:

  • 1 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 4 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • Pinch of salt

Instructions

  1. Preheat the Oven:
    Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease and flour two 9-inch round cake pans.
  2. Prepare Dry Ingredients:
    In a medium bowl, sift together the cake flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
  3. Mix Wet Ingredients:
    In a separate bowl, combine the milk, vanilla extract, and almond extract. Set aside.
  4. Whip Egg Whites:
    In a clean, dry bowl, beat the egg whites with an electric mixer on medium-high speed until stiff peaks form. Set aside.
  5. Cream Butter and Sugar:
    In a large mixing bowl, cream the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy, about 3-4 minutes. Add the vegetable oil and beat until well combined.
  6. Combine Wet and Dry Ingredients:
    Gradually add the dry ingredients to the butter mixture, alternating with the milk mixture, beginning and ending with the dry ingredients. Mix until just combined.
  7. Fold in Egg Whites:
    Gently fold the beaten egg whites into the batter until no streaks remain.
  8. Bake the Cakes:
    Divide the batter evenly between the prepared cake pans. Smooth the tops with a spatula. Bake in the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  9. Cool the Cakes:
    Allow the cakes to cool in the pans for 10 minutes, then remove them from the pans and transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
  10. Prepare the Frosting:
    In a large mixing bowl, beat the butter on medium speed until creamy. Gradually add the powdered sugar, one cup at a time, beating on low speed until combined. Add the heavy cream, vanilla extract, and a pinch of salt. Increase the mixer speed to medium-high and beat until the frosting is light and fluffy, about 3-4 minutes.
  11. Frost the Cake:
    Once the cakes are completely cool, place one layer on a serving plate. Spread a layer of frosting over the top. Place the second cake layer on top and frost the top and sides of the cake with the remaining frosting.
  12. Serve and Enjoy:
    Slice and serve the Heavenly White Cake. Enjoy its light, fluffy texture and delicious flavor with your friends and family!

Tips:

  • Make sure all ingredients are at room temperature for best results.
  • For a smoother frosting, sift the powdered sugar before adding it to the butter.
  • You can add food coloring to the frosting for a fun twist.
