1 cup all purpose flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 stick butter, softened
1/2 cup + 2 T sugar
2 tsp vanilla extract
1/3 cup milk
Preheat oven to 350.
In a medium sized bowl, combine the flour, baking powder and salt. Set aside.
Cream together the butter and sugar. Add the egg and beat until combined. Add the vanilla extract and beat again.
Add the dry ingredients alternately with the milk to the butter/sugar mixture and mix until smooth.
Scoop batter into a greased cake pan (or nine inch pan) and bake for 25 minutes, or until light, springy and golden.
When cool, frost with chocolate frosting and douse with rainbow sprinkled. Guaranteed to heal almost anything.
