Aladdin Cake Recipe
Now, let’s make that magical cake! Here’s a simple recipe for an Aladdin-themed cake:
– 2 ½ cups all-purpose flour
– 2 ½ tsp baking powder
– ½ tsp salt
– 1 ½ cups unsalted butter, softened
– 2 cups granulated sugar
– 4 large eggs
– 1 tsp vanilla extract
– 1 cup whole milk
– Blue and purple food coloring
– Aladdin-themed cake toppers (magic carpet, genie’s lamp, Aladdin, Jasmine)
- Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and grease and flour two round cake pans.
- In a bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt.
- In another bowl, beat the softened butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in the vanilla extract.
- Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, alternating with the milk. Begin and end with the dry ingredients. Mix until just combined.
- Divide the cake batter into two bowls. Tint one bowl with blue food coloring and the other with purple until you achieve the desired shades.
- Pour the blue batter into one cake pan and the purple batter into the other. Use a toothpick to create a marbled effect by gently swirling the colors together.
- Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Let the cakes cool in the pans for 10 minutes, then transfer them to a wire rack to cool completely
- Once the cakes are cool, frost them with your favorite frosting and decorate with Aladdin-themed cake toppers.
