Here is my vanilla recipe.
1½ Cups Unsalted Butter, softened 2 Cups Sugar 5 Eggs 1 Tsp. Salt 2¾ Cups All-Purpose Flour 1 Tsp. Baking Soda 1 Tbsp. Baking Powder 1 Tbsp. Vanilla, Butter Nut Extract 1¼ Cups Whole Milk
Preheat oven to 350. Prepare 2- 8 or 9 cake pans with wax paper sprayed with baking spray. In a stand mixer beat butter and sugar on medium speed until light and fluffy, about 10 min. In the meantime in a small bowl sift together all dry ingredients. Add in extract and eggs, 1 at a time and beat after each egg. Beat until fluffy about 8 min. Now alternately add flour and milk to butter mixture. Once it is all incorporated beat on high speed for 30 seconds. Remove from mixer and do a quick stir with a spoon. Evenly divide batter between to 2 pans. Bake for 30-40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out with just a couple crumbs
