HOW TO MAKE THIS VANILLA CAKE

Preheat and Prep: Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease and flour your Bundt mold to ensure the cake doesn’t stick.

Mix Dry Ingredients:

In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.

Cream Butter and Sugar:

In a large mixing bowl, cream the softened butter, avocado oil, and granulated sugar until light and fluffy. This should take about 3-4 minutes.

Add Eggs and Vanilla:

Beat in the eggs one at a time, ensuring each egg is fully incorporated before adding the next. Mix in the vanilla extract.

Combine Wet and Dry Ingredients:

Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, alternating with the buttermilk. Start and end with the dry ingredients. Mix until just combined; do not overmix.

Cake-Batter

Bake:

Pour the batter evenly into the prepared Bundt mold. Bake for 50-60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Let the cake cool in the mold for about 15 minutes before transferring it to a wire rack to cool completely.

Prepare the Frosting:

While the cake is cooling, prepare the cream cheese frosting. In a medium bowl, beat the cream cheese and butter until smooth and creamy. Gradually add the powdered sugar and a pinch of salt, beating until the frosting is smooth.

Frost the Cake: Once the cake is completely cooled, spread or pipe the cream cheese frosting over the top. Feel free to add any additional toppings or decorations you like. I opted for some sprinkles.
