HI SISTERS! In today's video, I tried to bake a cake from scratch, with NO RECIPE. Inspired by the Try Guys, I had to guess every single ingredient from my memory to try to bake a delicious vanilla cake and I let my friends try it at the end... enjoy and don't forget to thumbs up and subscribe!!

    I love you James I really do, but as a baker this hurt a lot. 😂 you mix dry ingredients in a separate bowl and mix it in divided, to your wet ingredients, and you should have blended butter, eggs, vanilla and milk first, added your dry ingredients slowly, then your eggs last.

    This is how I would do it without a recipe I’m not a baker but here’s how I would do it 1. Flour 2. Salt 3. Baking soda 4. Mix all of those together in its own bowl 5. Beat the butter 6. Add sugar and beat together with butter 7. Add eggs 8. Slowly incorporate the dry stuff in with the sugar mixture 9. Add vanilla 10. Cook at 350 for maybe 1:30 mins
