White 50th Birthday Cake Recipes

There are many options for white 50th birthday cake recipes, some are very simple yet tasty.

Some people don't like chocolate, others just want a different color cake, perhaps for a theme. These are delicious white 50th cake recipes for you to consider.

I don't know if anyone else still feels the way I do about baking, but I feel guilty if I make a cake for someone from a box.

I think it must be my creative streak that makes me feel it's not worthy if I didn't use a recipe and make it from scratch. ( If you feel this way, too visit me on Facebook and tell me I'm not the only one ;-)

My absolute favorite cookbook is the one that I was given at my wedding shower way too many years ago.

It is Betty Crocker's Cookbook, Twenty-eighth printing, 1976. I use this cookbook all the time, and have done so since day one.

One of the best birthday cake recipes I've found is this silver white cake recipe that comes from page 94 of my version.

This recipe is for a plain white cake that you can use as a foundation for other flavors of fillings, frostings, and decorations to make your own unique creation.

(To make it truly white, remove the yolks and add a third egg.)

- 2 eggs

Cream together the sugar and butter, then add the eggs one at a time, beating after each, and finally stir in vanilla.

Add baking powder, flour to the wet mixture and blend well. Lastly stir in milk and continue to blend until smooth. Pour into the pan.

Bake for 30 to 40 minutes. For cupcakes, 20 to 25 minutes. Cake is done when it springs back to the touch.
