“Indulge in Ina Garten’s Sweetest Treats”

The Best Ina Garten Dessert Recipes Ever


-1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, at room temperature
-1 cup granulated sugar
-2 large eggs
-1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
-1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
-1 teaspoon baking powder
-1/2 teaspoon baking soda
-1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
-1/2 cup buttermilk


1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Grease an 8-inch square baking pan with butter.

2. In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream the butter and sugar together on medium-high speed until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes.

3. Add the eggs, one at a time, and mix until combined. Add the vanilla and mix until combined.

4. In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.

5. With the mixer on low speed, add the dry ingredients to the butter mixture in three batches, alternating with the buttermilk, and mix until just combined.

6. Pour the batter into the prepared pan and spread evenly. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.

7. Let cool in the pan for 10 minutes, then turn out onto a wire rack to cool completely. Serve with a dollop of whipped cream or a scoop of ice cream. Enjoy!
