  • 320 g all-purpose flour
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 70 g butter
  • 200 ml creme frache
  • 3 medium-sized eggs
  • 150 g sugar
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F (approx. 175°C) and generously grease and flour your cake pan. Shake out excess flour and set aside.
  2. In a small bowl, sift all-purpose flour, and add in the salt. Mix well and set aside.
  3. Crack the eggs in a large mixing bowl. To that, add sugar and use an electric mixer to beat till creamy, smooth and fluffy; about 3 minutes.
  4. To that, add melted butter and continue mixing till well incorporated.
  5. Reduce the speed to low and gradually add in the dry ingredients, about ¼ cup at a time. Mix and scrape down the sides and bottom of the bowl and stir again on low speed till well combined; about 1 minute. (Don’t overwork the batter).
  6. Add crème frache and carefully mix in with a hand whisk.
  7. Spread the batter into the prepared cake pan and use a spatula to smoothen the surface of the batter.
  8. Transfer to preheated oven and bake for 30 minutes or until a wooden skewer inserted in the center of the vanilla cake comes out with a few moist crumbs; not totally clean.
  9. Carefully remove the cake from the oven and allow to cool for 20 minutes.
  10. Run a knife around the sides of the cake pan and invert vanilla cake onto a cooling rack and allow to cool completely before serving.
