This is a very good and reliable basic white cake, made even better, at least for me, with a couple of small tweaks - 1/2 cup butter rather than 1/3, and 1/2 cup milk rather than the full cup called for. Also, since some reviewers reported this didn't rise as much as they would have liked I felt that, excluding the obvious cause of expired baking powder, perhaps there was too MUCH baking powder, which then could have resulted in the opposite of the desired effect - so I reduced the amount to 1-1/2 tsp. rather than 2 tsp. A pinch of salt for me was 1/4 tsp. I baked these as cupcakes and was very pleased. (To finish them I removed a plug from each cupcake, filled them with strawberry jam, then frosted them with Strawberry Buttercream - sinful)
