A Simple Little Cake

Circle B Kitchen

1 stick of butter, softened to room temperature

1 1/4 cups of fine sugar

3 large eggs

2tbsp vanilla (I used 1 T vanilla extract and 1 T vanilla paste)

2 cups of all purpose flour

2 teaspoons of baking powder

¼ tsp salt

1/2 cup of whole milk

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and butter an 8″ cake pan.

Cream together the butter and sugar until it is pale and light and fluffy.

Beat the eggs, one at a time, into the butter and sugar until you have a smooth silky batter and then add the vanilla.

In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, salt, and baking powder. Add the dry ingredients into the batter, alternating with additions of the milk.

Pour the mixture into your greased cake pan and bake for about 30 – 40 minutes or when a toothpick comes out clean.

Allow the cake to sit for a 20 minutes or so before turning it out of the pan.

This is amazing fresh out of the oven, but even better the next day.
