Soft Vanilla Cake with Raspberry Buttercream – A delicious vanilla cake recipe that is easy to make and is perfectly moist and soft. Filled and topped with a delicious and creamy raspberry buttercream.
After making that simply delicious Easy Raspberry Buttercream I just had to make something perfect to go with it. I chose to make a simple vanilla cake because I love how the soft flavours of the vanilla cake compliment the tangy sweet raspberry buttercream.
My perfect cake is normally one where the cake itself is not incredibly sweet but then has a perfectly sweet and creamy frosting and filling. That is how cake should be. And that is exactly how this cake is. The vanilla cake is moist, soft and has a beautiful subtle flavour.
This Soft Vanilla Cake with Raspberry Buttercream is also super duper easy and quick to whip up. The cake itself takes barely 15min to make and only bakes for about 20min. How quick and easy is that! It truly is my go to cake every time I have to make something quickly for someones birthday or some or other occasion. It also goes perfectly with just about any filling and frosting. This time I used 3 small 15cm round cake tins because I LOVE a tall cake. It just looks so beautifully majestic. But if you wanted to, you could opt for two larger cake pans instead. I then baked them all at the same time, and placed them on a wire rack to cool down while I made the buttercream and then gently spread the icing over the cake with a palette knife (I seriously love the Cake Boss range, so sturdy and beautiful). Easy right?
The Easy Raspberry Buttercream is so yummy! Oh my goodness. It is sweet, tangy, creamy and fluffy. I love how beautiful the colour is as well without having any food colouring in at all. All of that beautiful colour is naturally so from the raspberries. How awesome is that right?
