A simple, fool proof recipe for a Classic Vanilla Bundt Cake which takes less than 10 minutes of work!


  • 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour (195g)
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch (35g)
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup oil (100g)
  • 1/4 cup melted butter (57g)
  • 1 cup granulated sugar (220g)
  • 2 eggs + 1 egg white
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk (120g); or sub 1/2 cup milk + 1 tbsp lemon juice or vinegar
  • 1.5 to 2 tsp vanilla bean paste


  • Preheat oven to 350F (conventional)
  • Sift flour, cornstarch, baking powder, baking soda and salt into a bowl and mix. Set aside
  • In a separate bowl, whisk the sugar, oil and butter for 1-2 minutes with a hand mix until the mixture starts to change color. Add the eggs, egg white and vanilla, and whisk for another 1-2 minutes
  • Add a third of the buttermilk to the wet ingredients and whisk to combine. Add a third of the dry ingredients and fold with a rubber spatula gently until mixed in. Repeat, adding the buttermilk and dry ingredients in thirds and combining until everything is mixed together
  • Prep a bundt pan by brushing generously with oil and dusting with granulated sugar. Pour the batter into the pan
  • Bake for ~30 minutes (exact time varies), until a toothpick comes out with moist crumbs attached
  • Let the cake rest in the pan for 10-15 min, then carefully turn it out
  • Dust with powdered sugar and serve!


  • The exact baking time will vary depending on the type and material of your Bundt pan; check around the 25 min mark with a toothpick
  • Try to use good quality vanilla, like vanilla bean paste, for the best flavor
