Basic White Cake

This months cake selection was entirely up to me! I had planned to do the Coconut cake with the custard butter cream, but things got a little stressful for me this week. I had to choose another cake to go with the ingredients I already had in my pantry. A little disappointed about having to choose another cake.
So basically this recipe is a basic white cake that pairs well with any filling. I liked the flavor and texture of the cake, I think adding almond extract would bring it to the next level. I used a whipped topping with a peanut butter chocolate Ganache drizzle. The cake tastes pretty much like box cake mix. Just a slight dryer, I might try adding some oil to the batter to make it a little more moist.
This was also our last recipe from "The Cake Book". Next month we start baking from a new book. Visit my blog next month for the reveal of our new book and first recipe.
