This Mexican Vanilla Cake is made with simple ingredients that you likely already have in your pantry. You will need:

– 2 cups all-purpose flour
– 1 teaspoon baking powder
– 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
– 1/2 teaspoon salt
– 1/2 cup butter, softened
– 1 cup granulated sugar
– 2 eggs
– 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
– 1/2 cup buttermilk
– 1/2 cup heavy cream
– 1/2 cup custard
– 1/2 cup cream cheese, softened
– 1/2 cup confectioners’ sugar


1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease and flour a 9-inch round cake pan.

2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.

3. In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the vanilla extract.

4. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, alternating with the buttermilk.

5. Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake for 25-30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.

6. Allow the cake to cool completely before frosting.

7. To make the frosting, beat together the heavy cream, custard, cream cheese, and confectioners’ sugar until light and fluffy.

8. Spread the frosting over the cooled cake and serve.


– For a richer flavor, try adding a teaspoon of almond extract to the cake batter.

– If you don’t have buttermilk, you can make a substitute by combining 1/2 cup of milk with 1/2 teaspoon of white vinegar or lemon juice.
