I hit the Jackpot twice today! (recipes that is 🙂 ) I finally found a recipe that I can honestly say is the BEST vanilla cake recipe ever! Also, the BEST buttercream frosting! How often do you find a keeper? With me, I search and search…bake and bake…and once in awhile I find a keeper. I have two for you today, and I will post the White Chocolate Pudding Buttercream Frosting after this one. You’re lucky I’m sharing this one 😉

2 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 large eggs
2 cups sugar
1 cup canola oil
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 cup sour cream
1/2 cup milk
Preheat oven to 350F. Line muffin tins with paper liners (for cupcakes).
In a medium-sized bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
In the bowl of your electric mixer, beat eggs and sugar until thick and creamy (about 2 minutes).
Blend vanilla, oil and sour cream.
Add flour and milk, alternating- starting and finishing with flour.
Pour in muffin tins. Bake 18-19 minutes or until they test done.
