Vanilla Butter Cake

How to make Vanilla Butter Cake Recipe - Basic butter cake is a variation of the original 1-2-3-4 cake which followed the formula, 1 cup butter, 2 cups sugar, 3 cups flour and 4 eggs.

2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 eggs
2/3 cup milk

Preheat oven to 375F (190C).

Grease 2 round, 8- or 9-inch, cake pans, or 1 (8-inch-square) pan. In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder, salt, butter and sugar. Mix until blended. Add vanilla, eggs and milk.

Mix at high speed or by hand, scraping sides of bowl with a spatula, until batter is smooth. Turn into greased pan or pans. Bake 25 to 30 minutes for round cakes, 40 to 45 minutes for square cake, or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool on a rack before frosting. Makes 2 (8- or 9-inch) layers or 1 (8-inch-square ) cake.

This combination made a heavy cake. Today, baking powder and milk are added to the mixture to make a moister, lighter cake. This is a simple variation of the original cake.
