I made this cake using the Williams-Sonoma Dessert recipe...We had gallons of buttermilk and I had to find a way to get rid of them...The first time I made this, the cake turned out to be very sweet...So, for this birthday cake, I reduced the amount of sugar to one and a half cup and it came out just right...I just used sweetened whipped cream for frosting and some sprinkles for color coz it's what the celebrant wanted...
2 3/4 Cups All Purpose Flour plus extra for dusting, sifted 1 Tbsp Baking Powder 1/4 tsp Salt 3/4 Cup Unsalted butter, room temp. plus extra for greasing 1 1/2 Cups Granulated sugar 3 Large Eggs, room temp. 2 tsp Vanilla extract 1 1/4 Cups Buttermilk
Preheat oven to 350 deg.F. lightly grease pans and line with parchment paper. Grease paper and dust with flour. In a bowl, sift flour, salt and baking powder. Whisk together until well blended. In a mixer on medium speed, beat butter until smooth. Slowly add sugar and continue beating until well blended and fluffy. Add eggs one at a time just until incorporated. Beat in vanilla. Turn mixer on low speed, add flour mixture in 3 batches alternately with buttermilk in 2 batches.
Pour batter on pans and spread evenly. Bake until a toothpick inserted into the center of cake comes out clean, 25-3o mins. Let it cool completely before frosting.
