  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup whole milk


Preparing the Cake:

  1. Preheat the Oven: Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease and flour an 8-inch round cake pan.
  2. Mix Dry Ingredients: In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
  3. Cream Butter and Sugar: In a large bowl, beat the softened butter and sugar together using an electric mixer until light and fluffy, about 3-4 minutes.
  4. Add Eggs and Vanilla: Beat in the eggs one at a time, ensuring each is fully incorporated before adding the next. Mix in the vanilla extract.
  5. Combine Wet and Dry Ingredients: Gradually add the dry ingredients to the butter mixture in three additions, alternating with the milk. Begin and end with the dry ingredients. Mix until just combined.
  6. Bake: Pour the batter into the prepared cake pan and spread it evenly. Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean.
  7. Cool: Allow the cake to cool in the pan for 10 minutes, then transfer it to a wire rack to cool completely.
