This is a very easy, fragrant cake.

The recipe is from the Doubleday Cookbook and doubled the vanilla.
(An excellent all purpose cookbook, I got it when I worked there, before they wisely decided it needed a new cover)

  • 1 1/3 cups flour
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup sweet butter (half a stick)
  • 2/3 cup milk
  • 1 egg
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
Heat your oven to 375.
Sift first four ingredients into a large bowl.
Add butter and milk, until blended and then
beat for 1 1/2 minutes. Add egg and vanilla and
beat for another 1 1/2 minutes. Bake 20-30 minutes
depending on your pan. I use and 8 inch round.
