White Almond Three Layer Cake
1 (18.25 ounce) package white cake mix
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup white sugar
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/3 cups water
1 cup sour cream
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 teaspoon almond extract
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Grease and flour three 9-inch cake pans.
2. Whisk together the white cake mix, flour, sugar, and salt in a large bowl until well mixed. Pour in the water, sour cream, vegetable oil, almond and vanilla extracts, and eggs, and beat with an electric mix on low until all the ingredients are mixed and moistened and mixed well.
3. Pour the batter into the prepared cake pan, and bake in the preheated oven until the top is a light golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean, about 25 minutes.
Cool 10 minutes in pans. Remove and cool completely on wire racks.
