Easy White Cake Recipe from Kitchenaid

Tonight I took my brand-spanking-new RED Kitchenaid Artisan Mixer for a test drive. It seemed appropriate to initiate this beautiful machine with a recipe straight out of the booklet that came with it. It's as simple as can be - dry ingredients are dumped in the bowl. Wet ingredients are added all at once. It's mixed for about three minutes. That's it.

Ready for her very first project!

Here's the recipe. Enjoy!

Preheat oven to 350 degrees Farenheit
Grease and flour two 9-inch round cake pans (I line mine with parchment rounds)

Dry ingredients:
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt

Wet ingredients:
1/2 cup Crisco shortening
4 egg whites at room temperature
1 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla

Place dry ingredients in mixer bowl and combine. Add Crisco, egg whites, milk, and vanilla. Mix at low speed for 1 minute.  Scrape bowl. Mix at medium speed for another minute until smooth. Scrape bowl and give one final mix.

Pour batter into pans. Bake for 30-35 minutes or until cake tests done.

VERY pleasantly surprised!

Look at that beautiful crust! 

Ready to get dressed up!

Time to celebrate!


  1. Looks great Jeanne, enjoy your new "toy"..... Strange post above! CKJ

  2. looks like your new toy did a super job with that cake ! I'm gonna use the recipe this weekend for a birthday .It looks yummy !

  3. Sooooo jealous, a RED Kitchen Aid (you know how much I enjoy my kitchen aid for mixing bread dough) -- but you are oh so deserving of the newest model since you put it through all of its paces. Happy to hear it arrived and that you are putting it to use. Cake sounds nice and easy, will have to try it this holiday season when my "kids" are vising me.
