You can use any cake flour, but don't use regular flour the consistency will not be the same.
Each oven temperature can run different, 325 is the recommended temperature.
Make sure to add the eggs one at a time.
I use a good quality vanilla but imitation works just as well.
Place cake pan mold on a baking sheet for spills and balance. If your using a Bundt pan you don't need to use a sheet pan.
