For the White Cake: – 1 cup unsalted butter softened – 2 cups granulated sugar – 4 large egg whites – 1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract – 3 cups all-purpose flour – 4 teaspoons baking powder – ½ teaspoon salt – 1 ½ cups whole milk


For the Vanilla Buttercream Frosting: – 1 cup unsalted butter softened – 4 cups powdered sugar – 1/4 cup whole milk – 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract


For the White Cake: 1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease and flour two 9-inch round cake pans. 2. In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add the egg whites one at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in the vanilla extract. 3. In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt.


4. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, alternating with the milk, beginning and ending with the dry ingredients. Mix until just combined. 5. Divide the batter evenly between the prepared pans and smooth the tops. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. 6. Allow the cakes to cool in the pans for 10 minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.


For the Vanilla Buttercream Frosting: 1. In a large bowl, beat the softened butter until creamy. 2. Gradually add the powdered sugar, one cup at a time, beating well after each addition. 3. Add the milk and vanilla extract, and continue to beat until smooth and fluffy.


4. Once the cakes are completely cooled, frost the top of one cake layer, place the second layer on top, and frost the top and sides of the entire cake. 5. Decorate as desired, and enjoy your classic white cake with vanilla buttercream frosting!
