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.

The consistency was closer to cornbread than cake. It was not light and fluffy at all. It made a decent tasting bread but was not cake-like at all.

I made these today for a birthday - cupcakes. They were light, fluffy and delicious. This one is a keeper.

I made several substitutions (egg whites, brown sugar, soy milk and margarine) but holy cow this cake is delicious. Fluffy and perfect! Love love love. Definitely a keeper.

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

I made them as cupcakes, and they came out great! Light and not too sweet. I added raspberry extract instead of vanilla for a fun, fruity taste. My only complaint is they fell quite a bit so they weren't as fluffy as I had hoped.
