The Best White Cake Recipe

What is the perfect cake for Mother's Day? It is the cake that you spend the day baking with love and that you are so proud to give it to her for Mother's Day. It does not matter how the cake looks like, in her eyes it will be perfect.

I am a mom of three children and my mom has four children and any gift coming from our children is always the best gift. Like this cake will be the best cake for my mom. Even if it is not perfect she will be touched that I baked this cake for her. I am blessed to have a mother that is still with us I know that she will be proud of me because it came from the heart. And at the end of the day, before going to bed, she will be thankful that we had a perfect day with her family.

To all mothers: Happy Mother's Day!

Classic White Layer Cake with Butter Frosting and Raspberry Almond Filling  

500 ml + 60 ml cake flour
250 ml Almond Breeze
6 large egg whites
10 ml almond extract
5 ml vanilla extract
375 ml sugar
20 ml baking powder
5 ml salt
170g butter
900 ml powdered sugar
15 ml vanilla extract
15 ml almond milk
pinch table salt
125 ml slivered almonds
75 ml raspberry jam

I have adapted the recipe from the CI website by replacing the milk with Almond Breeze and it's so moist and delicious.
