I prepared this delicious vanilla cake when I was alone in Breda for a weekend. I really felt like baking a cake with frosting, and I wanted to start with something simple as I’m not really experienced in baking yet. This turned out to be pretty delicious though!

I used a basic recipe for cake (2/3 of it, since I have a little cake mould so that I don’t end up eating an entire cake and feeling bad) and then added the flavours. I used so much vanilla, my apartment still smells like it! Yumm. The frosting is made with cream cheese, which will always be my favourite. This vanilla cake is definitely taken to a whole new level with that frosting!

This cake not only smells delicious, it tastes amazing as well! The vanilla in the cake and cinnamon in the frosting go great together. This recipe is for an entire cake: If you'd like to make a small one like I did use 2/3.
