    Nonnie4Two's Note:

    Found at a food blog, but I can't remember where. The original recipe didn't say how long to bake the cake for, so I always start with 30 minutes and work from there.

      I too used a Madagascar vanilla bean with 100% pure vanilla extract. The cake is delicious and I will be making this for my guests at my upcoming anniversary party (this weekend). Don't forget to add in the salt though.

      Very good! A couple of suggestions...
      Use a Madagascar vanilla bean for the most vanilla flavor.
      Also, I kept the egg whites separate and at the very end, I beat them until they formed soft peaks. Then, I folded the egg whites into the batter. This made for a lighter cake. I frosted with a home-made strawberry buttercream.

      This recipe is incredible! Definitely my favorite vanilla cake recipe of all time. Note: Step 4 of the instructions does not say to add the 1/4 tsp of salt, but it should! Don't forget to add it!

      Love, love, love this cake! Hooray for vanilla bean awesomeness!
