1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
4 large eggs, separated and at room temperature
1 cup butter, room temperature
1 cup brown sugar, divided
1 tsp vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 350F. Grease and flour a 9×5″ loaf pan.
In a small mixing bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder and salt.
In a medium mixing bowl, beat all four egg whites to soft peaks. Beat in 2 tablespoons of the brown sugar, one tablespoon at a time, until sugar is fully incorporated. Egg whites should still be at soft or somewhat stiff peak stage. If in doubt, err on the side of caution and don’t overbeat. Set aside.
In a large mixing bowl, cream together butter and remaining brown sugar (1 cup minus 2 tbsp). When fluffy, beat in all of the egg yolks and the vanilla extract. With the mixer on low speed, gradually beat in the flour mixture. When all the flour has been incorporated, beat in 1/3 of the egg whites. When smooth and with the mixer still on low, beat in another 1/3. Fold in remaining egg whites with a large spatula, making sure no streaks of egg whites remain visible in the batter. Pour into prepared pan.
Bake for 40-60 minutes, until a tester comes out clean.
Cool in pan for 5-10 minutes, then turn out onto a wire rack to cool completely before slicing

Makes 1 loaf. Serves 8-10.


1/3 cup butter, softened
1 1/3 cups all purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup sugar
2 large eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
3/4 cup milk (low fat is ok)

Preheat oven to 350F. Line a 12-cup muffin pan with paper liners.
Melt butter in a small saucepan and cook over low-medium heat until butter has turned an amber color and smells toasty, but not burnt. Butter will darken quickly once it begins to turn. Pour from saucepan, scraping all the browned bits from the bottom with a spatula, into a small bowl to cool.
In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, salt and sugar.
In a medium bowl, whisk together cooled butter, eggs, vanilla and milk. Pour into flour mixture and stir until just combined.
Distribute batter evenly into prepared muffin cups.
Bake for 16-19 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into the center of a cupcake comes out clean.
Cool completely on a wire rack before frosting.

Makes 12-cupcakes.

Quick Vanilla Buttercream Frosting
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 tsp vanilla extract
approx 3 cups confectioners’ sugar
2-4 tablespoons milk

Cream butter with an electric mixer until soft. Add vanilla and gradually add in sugar until most has been incorporated. Mixture will look a bit sandy. Add in milk as necessary (start with 2 tbsp), along with any remaining sugar, until frosting reaches an easy to work with consistency. The amount of sugar necessary will vary according to the weather and season, so you might need a bit extra if it’s humid out!

Makes 26 cupcakes or two 9-by-13-inch cake layers

* 8 ounces (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened, plus more for pans
* 3 cups all-purpose flour, plus more for dusting
* 1 tablespoon baking powder
* 1/2 teaspoon salt
* 2 cups sugar
* 4 large eggs
* 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
* 1 cup whole milk

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. For cupcakes: Line a standard muffin tin with paper liners. Set aside. For cake layers: Cut a long sheet of parchment or waxed paper into two 9-by-13-inch rectangles to line the bottom of two 9-by-13-inch baking pans. Butter and line pans. Butter linings, then flour pans, tapping out excess. Set aside. (Alternatively, if you have only one pan, set aside second piece of parchment paper to bake one layer at a time.)
2. Whisk together flour, baking powder, and salt in a medium bowl; set aside. Put butter and sugar in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment; cream on medium-high speed until pale, 2 to 3 minutes. On medium speed, add eggs one at a time, mixing well after each addition. Add vanilla, and mix, scraping down sides of bowl. With the mixer on low speed, add the flour mixture in three batches, alternating with two batches of milk. Stir with a rubber spatula until the batter is evenly blended.
3. For cupcakes: Pour batter into lined cups, filling each two-thirds full. (You will have batter left over for additional batches; set aside.) For cake layers: Pour 2 3/4 cups batter into each prepared pan. Smooth the top of each layer with a small offset spatula.
4. Bake until a cake tester inserted into centers comes out clean, 15 to 18 minutes for cupcakes, 20 to 25 minutes for layers.
5. Let layers or cupcakes cool in pans on wire racks, 20 minutes. Run a knife around edges of cakes to loosen. Invert cake layers or cupcakes to remove from pans (peel off parchment from cake layers). Reinvert, and let cool completely on racks. Wrap in plastic wrap, and refrigerate until ready to decorate.
6. For cupcakes (or cake layers, if baking in two batches): Repeat with remaining batter, lining muffin tin (or baking pan) when cooled.



1 3/4 cups (230 grams) cake flour, sifted

2 teaspoons baking powder

1/8 teaspoon salt

1 cup (226 grams) (2 sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature

1 cup (200 grams) superfine or castor sugar

4 large eggs, room temperature

2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract

Zest of a lemon or orange (optional)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (177 degrees C) and place rack in center of oven. Butter or spray with a pan spray, a 9 x 5 x 3 inch (23 x 13 x 8 cm) loaf pan. Line the bottom of the pan with parchment paper and butter or spray the paper.

In a large bowl, sift together twice, the flour, baking powder, and salt.

In the bowl of your electric mixer, or with a hand mixer, beat the butter until creamy and smooth. Gradually add the sugar, beating continuously on medium-high speed until light and fluffy (this will take about 5 minutes). Scrape down the sides of the bowl as needed. After about five minutes the batter should be light in color and fluffy in texture. Then add the eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each addition. Scrape down the sides of the bowl as needed. You will notice that the batter will look curdled. Don’t worry as the batter will come together again after you add the flour mixture. Add the vanilla and lemon zest, if using, and beat until incorporated.

Add the flour mixture and mix just until incorporated. Pour the batter into the prepared pan and smooth the top.

Bake for about 50 to 60 minutes or until the cake is golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

Remove the cake from the oven and place on a wire rack to cool for about 10 minutes. Remove the cake from the pan and cool completely. Serve warm or at room temperature
