White Sheet Cake for an American Flag Cake

Sheet Cake Flag Cake 4th of July Dessert Recipe


  • 3 lg. eggs, at room temperature
  • 1/2 C. unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 C. granulated sugar
  • 2 tsp. vanilla
  • 2 C. cake flour, sifted
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 3/4 C. milk 


  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Grease a 9x13" baking pan. If you plan to serve your American flag cake recipe in the pan, just greasing it is fine. If you'd like to remove the cake for a prettier presentation, lightly flour the pan, as well.
  2. In a medium mixing bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
  3. In another large mixing bowl, beat together the butter and sugar on medium speed until light and fluffy, about three minutes.
  4. One at a time, add the eggs to the butter mixture, beating on medium-high speed between each addition. Add the vanilla. Beat about 3 minutes, until well mixed.
  5. Stir in a third of the flour mixture, followed by a third of the milk. Repeat twice more until all flour and milk have been incorporated. Mix your batter just til combined.
  6. Pour into your pan, and bake until a tester comes out clean, about 20 minutes.
  7. Cool completely on a wire rack.
