Unicorn Cake Party

Vanilla Bean Cake

Preheat oven 325*F.

*1 cup Cake Flour, sift and then measure

*1\2 cup White Wheat Pastry Flour, sift and then measure

*2 and 1/2 teaspoons Baking Powder

*1/4 teaspoon Sea Salt

*1 cup Butter, room temperature

*1 and 3/4 cup Sugar

*4 Eggs, room temperature

*1 cup canned Evaporated Milk

*1 tablespoon Vanilla Bean Paste or 1 Vanilla Bean Seeds, seeds removed from bean (add vanilla bean paste/seeds to the milk)

*Cooking Spray

*Parchment Paper, cupcake liner if using that option

*(3) 6 inch Aluminum round cake pans

In a stand mixer with paddle attachment, cream together on medium speed the butter, sugar and salt until light and fluffy. Then add one egg at a time beating between each egg until incorporated.

In a mixing bowl sift together the cake flour, wheat pastry flour and baking powder. Then gradually add dry ingredients to the creamed mixture, on medium low-speed and alternating with the milk and vanilla mixture in thirds just until combined.

Use 3 round 6 inch cake pans, sprayed with cooking spray and lined with parchment. Then sprinkle a small amount of flour in each pan to coat cooking spray. This helps cakes to release from the pan after baking, tap out any unused flour.

Pour cake batter evenly between baking pans.

Bake in a 325*F. oven for 30-40 minutes or using a toothpick inserted to the middle of the cake comes out clean, also depending on your pan size. (About 30 minutes for 6 inch round pans)

Remove cakes from the oven and allow cakes to cool slightly, about 10 minutes and run a plastic knife around the edge of the cake, if needed. Allow cakes to cool on cooling racks until completely cool, frost as desired.
