Roommate’s Birthday Cake

Here’s a little tip for any college student learning how to live with someone, whether you know them or not.

Always do something special for their birthday. It will smooth other some of your not so pleasant moment.

Since my roommate’s birthday was this week, I did a vanilla cake for her. If you like sugar cookies, this is the cake for you. It takes exactly like a sugar cookie, plus it’s nice and moist. Very tasty.

Sugar Cookie Vanilla Cake

  • 1 1/2 cups Flour
  • 2 tablespoons Corn Starch
  • 2 teaspoons Baking Powder
  • 1/2 cup Unsalted Butter
  • 1/2 cup Oil
  • 1 cup Sugar
  • 2 large Eggs
  • 1 tablespoon Vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup Buttermilk

Heat oven to 375 degrees.

Beat butter, oil, and sugar until creamy.

Beat in eggs, then vanilla.

Add all dry ingredients, alternating with the buttermilk.

Place in 2-8 inch round cake pans lined with parchment paper.

Bake for 30-35 minutes. Let cool, then turn out and frost with your favorite frosting.

I recommend a chocolate frosting with this cake, it was a little dull with vanilla frosting. That didn’t stop us from devouring it.
