A white cake is the simplest cake you can make for your family. Originally, white cakes were made for weddings. It was also considered a symbol of wealth as few people could afford sugar and white flour, not forgetting other ingredients to favor it.

Today, the white cake has evolved. You can make it more perfect by adding some flavors such as vanilla extract and CBD. This article will take you through the procedure of infusing CBD onto your simple white cake.

What is CBD?

CBD is a compound derived from the hemp plant. Sometimes back, many people feared products from the hemp plant as they feared feeling high. Today, the use of CBD has grown worldwide. According to Atalay et al. (2019), CBD is packed with health benefits as it contains antidepressants, anti-inflammatory, and anti-seizure properties. CBD edibles such as cakes are among the common ways of taking CBD. Other people may take CBD in tinctures, oil, pills, or capsules. Many people do not like the earthly taste of CBD oil, and they prefer taking it in edibles such as cakes. When baking, you can choose to use either CBD oil or CBD butter. If you choose to use CBD oil, Urasaki et al. (2020) recommended buying CBD isolate oil as it has a higher concentration of CBD in it.

Tips on how to Make the Best White Cake with CBD

Making the best white cake with CBD depends on handling your ingredients, from storing them to mixing them. Here are some of the tips to apply

Use Moderate Heat

Nadulski et al. (2005) elaborated that CBD is very sensitive to hightemperatures. If you use too much heat, most of the CBD is lost, leaving a tasty cake with no health benefits. Moderate heat is important for the carboxylation process that makes CBD effective. Therefore, oven temperatures should not exceed 350 degrees. If you doubt the oven thermometer, you can use a separate over thermometer for accuracy.

Add CBD as the Last Ingredient

So many processes involved in preparing a cake may make CBD lose its potency. Therefore, pour in your CBD oil after mixing all the other ingredients.

Use Flavored Oil

Flavored oil may give your cake more flavor compared to plain CBD oil. You will get the health benefits of CBD and enjoy the flavor.

Use White Butter

If you want your cake to be white and not yellow or cream, use white butter. Colored butter may give your white cake a different color.

Keep your Ingredients at Room Temperatures

Ensure your ingredients such as milk, eggs, and butter are not stored in a very warm or cold place as it might make the can curdle or break.

Measure the Ingredients Early Enough

Measuring the ingredients as you prepare the cake might complicate the process. You might also forget some important ingredients, such as baking soda. Failure to use some ingredients might give you the wrong results.

Be Accurate

Weigh the ingredients rather than using an estimate. You can use a scale or other measuring tools such as cups and spoons. You might put in excess sugar or salt, giving you bad results.

Chill your Cake

Before applying any filling or toppings, chill the cake. It makes the cake yummy.

Store the oil in Air-tight Containers

As Eichhorn Bilodeau et al. (2019) instructed, CBD oil is sensitive to light. Exposing it to direct sunlight might make the oil lose its potency. Store your oil in a dark room.

Do not Substitute Ingredients

If this recipe calls for specific ingredients such as all-purpose flour, do not use other alternatives like self-rising flour. Do not replace water with milk. Substituting may not give you the intended results.


  • An oven
  • A fridge
  • Whipping stick/electric beater
  • Cooling rack wire
  • A large mixing bowl
  • 2 small bowls
  • 3 measuring cups
  • 2 teaspoons


  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 cups of water at room temperature
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2/3 cups butter
  • 100 ml CBD oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Use a separate oven thermometer for accuracy. It will take about 20 minutes to reach the intended temperatures.
  • Line the baking tray. Grease it with butter and flour. Greasing prevents the cake from sticking to the tray.
  • Put sugar and butter into the large mixing bowl. Cream thoroughly until they are fluffy.
  • In a separate small bowl, beat the eggs until soft peaks form. Add the eggs into the mixing bowl. Mix the ingredients.
  • Add vanilla extract. Mix well using an electric beater or a whipping stick. All ingredients should be mixed at a medium speed.
  • Sift all the dry ingredients (flour, baking powder, salt, sugar) into the mixing bowl. Sifting incorporates air into the mixture. Sifting will also help in eliminating large particles from the flour.
  • Add water gradually until the batter gets the right consistency. The batter should neither be very thick nor thin.
  • Finally, add the CBD oil and thoroughly mix. Let the mixture stand for about 5 minutes.
  • Pour the batter into the baking tin.
  • Bake for 45 minutes. Check the progress but avoid opening the oven door often as cold air may get in, making your cake sink.
  • Slowly pierce through the cake using a tester. If it comes out clean, your cake is ready. If otherwise, give it a few minutes.
  • Turn your cake into a cooling rack.
  • Serve it as a dessert or with a hot drink for breakfast.
