  • ½ tsp. Table salt
  • 1 ¼ cups Canola oil


  • 1 cup Buttermilk 
  • 2 tsp. Vanilla extract

  • Preheat oven to 350°. Coat two 8×2-inch round cake pans with nonstick spray, line with parchment circles, and coat again.
  • Whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a bowl. Blend in oil with mixer on low.
  • Combine buttermilk and vanilla.
  • Beat sugar and egg yolks in a separate bowl with a mixer on high until ribbons form, 5 minutes.
