Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour a 9x9-inch pan.
  2. Beat butter and sugar with an electric mixer in a large bowl until light and fluffy. The mixture should be noticeably lighter in color. Add room-temperature eggs one at a time, allowing each egg to blend into butter mixture before adding the next. Beat in vanilla extract with last egg. Combine flour and baking powder, and add to butter mixture, mixing well. Stir in milk until batter is smooth. Pour or spoon batter into prepared pan.
  3. Bake in preheated oven until cake springs back to the touch, 30 to 40.

  • Editor's Notes:
  • This recipe can also be made into muffins. Line a muffin pan with paper liners instead of using a 9x9-inch pan. Bake muffins for 20 to 25 minutes.

Loved it! Made this for my daughter's birthday and it was delicious! We dusted it with powdered sugar and topped it with sliced berries. Thank you for sharing.

Very compact and thick, didn't care for it much. Cake is supposed to be light and fluffy. Although it was easy to make and that was nice.

My family liked this cake. A little bit on the dry side. I made cupcakes and topped with some whipped cream and a strawberry.

really great recipe. I used raw sugar had to beat the sugar and butter for a long time, 1 part soy whole wheat flour (already blended flour), 1 part white flour and lactose free milk and lactose free butter (homemade from another recipe) and a hand full of lactose free chocolate chips.
