Now let’s get baking, I love a white cake. I decorated this cake with Vanilla bean frosting and some mini pink and white coconut marshmallows.

White vanilla cake

  • 5 large egg whites (at room temperature)
  • 1/3 cup (75 ml) milk (room temperature)
  • 3 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cup (350 g) regular sugar
  • 2 1/4 cups (290 g) all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons corn starch
  • 1 tablespoon + 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt (omit if using salted butter)
  • 3/4 cup (170 g) unslated butter, cubed (at room temperature)

Preheat the oven to 350 ˚F (180 ˚C).

Grease and flour two 8-inch (20 cm) cake pans.

Put the egg whites, milk and vanilla into a bowl and stir to mix.

Sift the flour, corn starch, salt and baking powder at least 3 times.

Tip the flour mixture into a mixing bowl with the sugar and mix for about 1 minute.

Add the cubed butter and beat until you get a sandy consistency and everything is combined.

Divide the batter between the two cake pans. I use my kitchen scales here to make sure the cakes are equally sized.

Bake in the preheated oven for 25-35 minutes, checking with a cake tester after 20.

Make the mini marshmallows before starting this cake, or buy ready made marshmallows.

You can find the recipe for these Christmas Mallows here.

I used a slightly smaller mold for these marshmallows, but you could just as well just grease a sheet of baking paper and pipe the mixture directly onto the paper. Sprinkle with finely ground desiccated coconut and leave to dry for 15 minutes before rolling into the coconut a second time.
