Confetti cake reminds me of birthdays, good times and celebrations. Even saying it makes me smile! But you don’t need a birthday or holiday to enjoy the fun and fancy of a delicious cake studded with pops of bright color. Adding the fun of sprinkles (or jimmies) is actually incredibly easy, and it makes a standard cake a little more festive.
Buttermilk cake is absolutely delicious (even without the confetti.) The buttermilk adds a tang you wouldn’t expect, but makes it addictive. The buttermilk twist plus the pretty confetti surprise makes this cake a winner every time.
Buttermilk Confetti Cake
We recommend using a Hamilton Beach Stand Mixer
or Hand Mixer
to make a perfectly fluffy cake batter.
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 large eggs
3/4 cup buttermilk
1/4 cup multi-colored sprinkles
Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease two 8-inch cake pans and line with parchment paper.
Stir flour, baking soda and salt in small bowl. Set mixture aside.
Beat butter, sugar and vanilla extract on HIGH in large bowl until blended. Add eggs, one at a time, until well blended.
Alternately add flour mixture and buttermilk until combined. Stir in 1/4 cup sprinkles.
Divide batter evenly between prepared pans. Place one pan on bottom rack and one pan on top rack, rotate halfway through baking.
Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center of cakes comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes on wire rack.
Remove cakes from pans and cool completely on wire racks. Frost with Cream Cheese Frosting
and top with sprinkles.
