"Vanilla" birthday cake recommendations for 4 year old

miss_mia | Jul 17, 2006 07:24 PM

My son turns four on Wednesday and has requested a "vanilla" cake. He's the kind of kid who likes only vanilla desserts - though he likes a little chocolate syrup on his ice cream, it's always vanilla.

I just reread the vanilla breakfast cake post, but I'm not sure if a cake without icing will go over very well. Perhaps if I let him have it for breakfast...

Any other suggestions for good white or yellow cake recipes with good vanilla flavor? I haven't consulted "Baking Illustrated," my go-to for birthday cake, but wondered if I could increase the vanilla in any given recipe.
