Funfetti Cake

Sasha made this for the little one's birthday.  She said she had better pictures, and I waited. But since they don't seem to be coming soon, I thought I would make do with what she sent of the slices.  It still looked good to me.  She sourced the recipe from here.

All purpose flour - 210 gms
Baking soda - 1/2 tsp
Baking soda - 1/4 tsp
Salt - 1/2 tsp
Unsalted butter (melted) - 115 gms
Granulated sugar - 150 gms
Light brown sugar - 50 gms
Egg - 1 large
Yogurt - 60 gms ( can also use greek yogurt or sour cream)
Vanilla extract - 15 ml - 1 tbsp
Sprinkles - 90 gms
Milk - 180 ml

Vanilla Buttercream

Unsalted butter - 230 gms - soften to room temperature
Powdered sugar - 360-480 gms
Heavy cream - 60 ml
Vanilla extract - 2 1/2 tsp
Salt - a big pinch

Preheat oven to 350F
Prepare 9" cake tin. - Grease well

Take a bowl.  Mix flour, baking powder, soda and salt.  Keep aside
In a large bowl melt butter ( can be in a microwave), whisk in sugars vigorously so that there are no lumps. Mixture will be gritty
Whisk in egg, yogurt, milk, vanilla extract.  Combine well
Now gradually add the dry ingredients.  Make sure there are no lumps
Batter will be thick
Add the sprinkles.  Do not overmix or the colour might bleed.

Pour the batter into prepared cake pan.  Bake for about 20 minutes, then loosely cover with aluminium foil.
See that the top does touch the top of the cake
Continue for another 10-17 minutes, till toothpick in centre comes out clean.
Remove from oven.  Allow to cool completely

Meanwhile make the frosting
Beat the softened butter until smooth and creamy.
Add powdered sugar, cream, vanilla extract.  If using electric mixer beat on high speed for 3 minutes
If the frosting is too thin, add more powdered sugar
If too thin, add more cream.

Frost the cooled cake.  And top with sprinkles.
*If you do not want the cake too sweet, go easy on the frosting
