A brush of sweet vanilla syrup keeps this delicious classic cake moist, but the real star of this cake is the frosting! With just a hint of cinnamon and sugar crystals. Everyone’s going to want to know how you made this yummy frosting. The secret to this amazing frosting is……Mexican Hot Chocolate Tables! The perfect amount of chocolate, spice and sweetness.
This moist vanilla cake can be made into a two, three or four layer cake! It’s all about portions! For the two layer cake just divide the cake batter in half. For the three layer cake divide the cake batter into thirds and for the four layer cake, bake two layers and slice the two layers horizontally into two pieces each. The two layer cake will be the normal thickness. The layers of the three layer cake will be thinner, and the four layer cake with have small layers with a lot more opportunities of adding the yummy Mexican chocolate frosting!
The original recipe calls for cake flour. Look below for how to make your own. Also, if you want to make this cake into a two or four layer cake click here for the recipe—->>>>VANILLA CAKE. I increased the amounts to make this into a three layer cake.
Take one level cup of all-purpose flour, remove two tablespoons, and then add two tablespoons of cornstarch back in. Be sure to sift the flour to distribute the cornstarch well before using it in your cake batter.
