Vanilla cake with chocolate frosting

Thanks to Lavanya for sharing this recipe along with photos..


  • 1 1/2 all purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup oil (else 1/2 cup butter= 1 stick butter)
  • 3/4 cup milk

Mix the wet ingredients and dry ingredients separately. Now in batches mix the dry ingredients with the wet.Beat until silky.

I used a mini cake pan set and filled my greased mini cake pan with the batter. Bake it at 350F (180 C) for about 20mins or until when picked with a tooth pick, nothing sticks to the pick.

Now cut the top layer of the cake and form a even platform for both the mini cake.Fill the gap with vanilla frosting. and place one over the other. Now cover the cake with chocolate frosting.

Vanilla frosting.:
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 2 tsp confectioner sugar.
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract.

Chocolate frosting:
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 2 tsp confectioner sugar
  • 2 tsp unsweetened cocoa powder

For frosting, make sure you use a stainless steel bowl. Before starting the procedure freeze the utensil, blade of the mixer for 10 mins in your freezer. Frosting melts really quick so make sure everything is real cold. Mix the ingredients in low speed first and then increase the beater speed gradually until thick frosting is formed. Make sure the frosting is really thick else, it melts real fast.

Decorate your cake with frosting.
