Gâteau à la Vanille (Vanilla Cake)

“It’s very easy to be different, but very difficult to be better.”
Jony Ive, Apple Designer Chief

Okay, sister, you can finally stop asking me about my “secret” vanilla cake recipe: I accidentally discovered it on a baking site years ago and really liked the background story
(the person who posted it described it as a note which was in her/his son’s backpack, as he returned from school).
Long story short, I followed the recipe and it turned out to be AMAZING!!!

1. Mix the sugar & butter, mix until the colour starts to change
2. Add the egg yolks
3. Add the vanilla extract
4. Add the milk
5. Gradually add half of the flour mix, then half of the beaten egg whites

* Feel free to halve or double this recipe, it still turns out quite well. 😉
