Recipe type: Cake
Ingredients
  • 8 oz. sour cream
  • ¼ Cup milk
  • 1 Cup butter, softened
  • 2 Cups sugar
  • 4 large eggs
  • 2¾ Cups flour
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Combine sour cream and milk.
  2. Beat butter at medium speed with an electric mixer until creamy. Gradually add sugar, beating well. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating until blended after each addition.
  3. Combine flour, baking powder, and salt; add to butter mixture alternately with sour cream mixture, beginning and ending with flour mixture. Beat at medium-low speed until blended after each addition. Stir in vanilla. Pour batter into 2 greased and floured 9-inch round cake pans.
  4. Bake at 350° for 30 to 35 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pans on wire racks 10 minutes. Remove from pans to wire racks, and let cool 1 hour or until completely cool.
  5. Spread Caramel Frosting between layers and on top and sides of cake.
Notes
As pictured, cake is made with 4 6-inch layers. Since it was pretty unstable, I recommend using 2 9-inch layers.
