We spend a lot of time talking about family dinners, school lunches, and easy breakfast ideas, but have to navigate similarly around the special foods we make in between our daily cooking routines. They bring us joy and also cause stress, require planning and also have to be done on the fly (because life). Both Stacie and Meghan have kids celebrating birthdays this week, so it felt like the perfect time to talk about the most enduring of all special foods: birthday cake. We’re sharing our family traditions, recipes, and tips for baking celebration cakes from elaborate to simple but special.

Any Cake Can Be Birthday Cake with The Right Attitude

Cake is Cake is Cake

Finally, Meghan is the extra one in this episode! While she makes a strong argument that everyday cakes can double as celebration cakes too (keep it easy!), she also thinks everyday cakes should be baked, well, every day. As you can imagine, Stacie’s less down with the idea of baking on the daily, though in the end, they both hope you’ll bake more. Because you only live once.

These are the recipes mentioned in this episode:

At the end of the day, kids love some thing that they can count on. They have favorite things that bring them joy, so if you land on an everyday cake that they love and can give it to them with a little embellishment on their birthday, they’ll love that!

Everyday One-Bowl Cake

This basic vanilla cake is an awesome everyday cake that you can dress up for so many occasions — or just make as a snack. It makes an ideal 13×9 sheet cake, or can be turned into 12 cupcakes (bake for 16 to 18 minutes) or two 8-inch rounds (bake for about 25 minutes).

Ingredients
1 cup oil
2 cups sugar
4 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking power
1 teaspoon salt
11/4 cup milk

1. Arrange a rack in the middle of the oven and heat to 350°F. Coat a 13×18-inch rimmed baking sheet with cooking spray; set aside.

2. Whisk together the oil, sugar, eggs, and vanilla in a large mixing bowl until smooth. Add the flour, baking powder, and salt and whisk until mostly incorporated, though some lumps will remain. Gently whisk in the milk until smooth.

3. Pour the batter into the prepped baking pan and bake until the cake is lightly browned and springs back when lightly pressed, 20 to 25 minutes. Cool the cake on a wire rack while preparing the frosting.
