INSTRUCTIONS

  • In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, combine the cake flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt.
  • Cut up the butter into small cubes and add to the dry ingredients. Mix on low speed until it resembles wet sand.
  • Add the oil, yogurt, buttermilk, egg, egg yolk, and vanilla, and mix until fully combined.
  • Gently mix in the sprinkles until evenly distributed.
  • Pour the batter into the prepared pan. Tap the pan on the counter a few times to release any air bubbles.
  • Bake the cake for 50-55 minutes or until deeply golden on top and a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Allow the cake to cool for 10 minutes in the pan, then use a knife to loosen the sides, and turn out onto a wire rack to cool completely.

For the glaze:

  • In a small bowl, whisk together the sifted powdered sugar and heavy cream until smooth.
  • Pour the glaze over the cooled cake, and top with more red, white, and blue sprinkles. Enjoy!
