1 ¼cupcake flour
½cupmelted unsalted butter
3large egg yolks
1large whole egg
Preheat the oven to 180C/350F. Line a 9x5 inch loaf pan with parchment paper. Or grease the pan with butter and dust with flour and keep aside.
In a bowl, mix the cake flour, salt, and baking powder. Keep aside.
In a mixing bowl of a standing mixer (you can use a hand mixer too). Use the whisk attachment. Add the egg yolks, and the whole egg beat for 2 minutes.
While still beating the eggs, add the sugar and keep on beating for 5 to 7 minutes until the eggs are lighter in color and double in size.
Add the vanilla, then slowly add the melted butter, and keep on beating until well combined.
Scrap the sides of the bowl and beat for a few seconds.
Add the flour to the butter and egg mixture in three additions. Alternate with the warm milk. Start with the flour and end with flour.
Keep the speed low and do not overbeat. You might see a few small lumps in the batter, but that’s fine.
Pour the batter into the previously prepared pan. Run a butter knife through the batter in a zig-zag pattern to remove air bubbles trapped in the batter.
Bake for 50 to 55 minutes in the electric oven and around 40 minutes in a gas oven. Or until a skewer inserted in the middle of the cake comes out clean.
Keep the cake in the pan for 5 to 7 minutes, then transfer to a cooling rack to cool completely.
This cake is delicious, and you can enjoy it without frosting.
• Do not use gluten-free flour in this recipe.• Use whole milk, vegan milk like almond and soy, or even low-fat milk won’t work.• Keep all the ingredients at room temperature.• If the eggs are cold, place them in warm water for 5 to 7 minutes.• Preheat the oven; the Gas oven takes around 15 to 20 minutes to reach the desired temperature. The electric oven takes a little longer.• It is best to line the baking pan with parchment paper, although you can still use the greasing and dusting method.• If the cake is browning too fast from the top (this happens mainly in a gas oven), after 20 minutes of baking, cover the cake loosely with aluminum foil.• The cake will have a slight dome, but it will look more even when it cools.• Flip the cake when frosting to have an even surface.• Do not bake this cake in a glass pan, especially if you are using a gas oven.• Butter Cream frosting recipe and Chocolate Frosting recipe links are in the post above.• How to store the cake frosted and without frosting?
