  • Cake Flour: 7 tablespoons

  • Sugar: 1/4 cup
  • Large Egg: 1
  • Vanilla Extract: 1 1/2 teaspoons
  • Vegetable Oil: 1 tablespoon
  • Whole Milk: 2 tablespoons
  • Sprinkles (optional): 1/4 cup


  • Butter (softened): 6 tablespoons
  • Powdered Sugar: 1/2 cup (adjust to taste)
  • Vanilla: a splash
  • Salt: a pinch


  1. Prep:
    • Preheat oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease and line a small loaf pan with parchment paper.
  2. Mix Dry Ingredients:
    • In a small bowl, whisk together cake flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  3. Cream Butter and Sugar:
    • In another bowl, cream the butter and sugar until fluffy. Add the egg, vanilla extract, and oil, mixing until combined.
  4. Combine:
    • Alternately add the dry ingredients and milk to the butter mixture, starting and ending with the dry ingredients. Mix until just combined. Fold in sprinkles if using.
  5. Bake:
    • Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake for about 25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  6. Frost:
    • While the cake cools, whip the frosting ingredients together until smooth and creamy. Frost the cooled cake.


  • For an extra smooth frosting, sift the powdered sugar before mixing.
  • Add a bit more vanilla to the frosting for a stronger flavor.
  • Let the cake cool completely before frosting to prevent the frosting from melting.


  1. Can I use all-purpose flour instead of cake flour? While cake flour yields a lighter texture, you can substitute with all-purpose flour. However, the cake may be slightly denser.
  2. Can I make the cake ahead of time? Yes, you can bake the cake in advance and store it at room temperature, tightly wrapped, for up to two days before frosting.
