The Best Vanilla Cake Recipe (From Scratch) Updated 2019 By sugargeekshow.com
This Vanilla Cake recipe is the base for most of my cakes. It's got a great crumb, is moist and tender but is dense enough to carve and stack for wedding cakes or sculpted cakes. This recipe makes two 8" x 2" round cakes. I put 23oz of batter in each pan.

Heat oven to 335º F/168º C — 350º F/177º C. I tend to use lower setting to prevent my cakes from getting too dark on the outside before the inside is done baking.
Place 4oz of the milk and oil in a separate bowl or cup and set aside
Combine remaining milk, vanilla and room temp eggs in a separate measuring cup and set aside
