Vanilla Cake with Fudgy Frosting

January will be over in a day pals. How's this month so far?
I think i've done nothing special in this month, but i gained my skills on Photography which is NICE.

I'm going to work my ass off for my last term start from 9th February, then i'll be graduate, and i have no idea what am i going to do in the future?

For the past days, i've been thinking about, what kind of job that i should get latter?Well you know in my Resolutions list i wanted a job in Culinary field (i can't be a chef though), maybe as a food writer or a food critic, a very good and awesome food blogger with a better camera and a better lightning and experiences?Maybe someday i can be a food photographer. I want it so bad....and i wish to get a job like that.

But i don't know.....let's just see.... :D

Soooooo, you guys surely know the Youtube kitchen Princess Laura Vitale right?She's so amazing and i've been watching her channel for like....5 years!
Her recipes are simple and she's constantly giving you substitutes if one of the ingredients are hardly to be found or if you don't like it, etc.

I love her recipe of Vanilla cake and been baking with her recipe for a few times. It's so moist not too sweet, and absolutely delicious :9 you can put any frosting but mine was the simple Chocolate Fudgy Frosting.

Vanilla Cake by Laura Vitale :


¾ of a Cup of Unsalted Butter at Room Temperature
3 Eggs
2 ½ Cups of All Purpose Flour
2 ½ tsp of Baking Powder
½ tsp of Salt
1 ¾ Cup of Sugar
1 ½ tsp of vanilla extract (i used Vanilla Essence, because it's halal)
¼ Cup of Sour Cream (i used buttermilk instead)
1 Cup of Whole Milk

Directions :
1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Butter two - 9 inch (23 cm) round cake pans and line the bottoms of the pans with parchment paper. Set aside.

2. In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar, add the eggs, vanilla, sour cream and milk and mix until all the wet ingredients are well incorporated.

3. Add the flour, salt & baking powder and mix it just enough to incorporate the dry ingredients but don’t (NEVER EVER EVER) over mix the batter.

4. Pour batter into the prepared pan, use your spatula to spread it evenly.

5. Bake it for 25 to 30 minutes and let it cool completely before frosting it.

Chocolate Fudgy Frosting :

Ingredients :

300 ml whipping cream
325 gr Dark Chocolate Chopped into tiny pieces
