Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 350F. Spray disposable baking pans with nonstick spray.

  • Whisk together flour, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl.

  •  Combine sugar, oil, eggs, and vanilla extract in another bowl. Mix with an electric mixer on medium speed until ingredients are just combined.

  •  Add half of flour mixture and half of milk to sugar mixture. Mix well. Repeat with second half of flour mixture and milk.

  • Divide batter evenly into 7 bowls. When adding food coloring to each bowl, start out with about 1/4 - 1/2 tsp. Add more as necessary. Pour cake batter into prepared pans. Bake in batches of two or three for 10-12 minutes, or until center has set and edges of cake slightly pull away from the pan. Let cake layers cool completely before frosting.
