This is a cake recipe by my beloved Great Grandmother! She was a master in her time. She grew up during the depression and made up lots of recipes cooking for her large family. This cake is wonderful! I serve it with frosting or whip cream and berries. Enjoy!
Nany’s White Cake
1 cup white sugar
1/3 cup butter, softened
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 pinch salt
1 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour two 8 or 9 inch round cake pans.
2 In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs one at a time, mixing well after each addition. Combine the flour, baking powder and salt; stir into the batter alternately with the milk. Stir in vanilla. Distribute batter evenly between the prepared pans.
3 Bake for 25 to 30 minutes in the preheated oven, until the cake springs back when pressed gently in the center. Cool in pans over a wire rack. When completely cooled, frost or fill as desired.
