This is one of the easiest vanilla butter cake recipes I’ve ever made, and for those interested I found it in Super Food Ideas Australia magazine.
It is SO fluffy and sweet. Honestly, it sounds really boring to me but one’s it’s baked – it’s one of the most moreish and delish things in this world!!
