This is the first cake that I had learned to make when i was a kid and I still love it. It's great for snacking on, I usually cut them into small rectangular pieces to serve to guests.

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 170C and grease/flour a 9-inch cake pan.
  2. Cream the butter and sugar in a large mixing bowl.
  3. Add eggs one by one and beat well after each addition until light and fluffy.
  4. Add vanilla essence.
  5. Fold in the sifted flour and salt bit by bit, keep beating mixture.
  6. Add milk and mix well.
  7. Place into cake pan, making sure that the mixture is leveled, leaving a shallow well in the middle to ensure that the cake rises evenly.
  8. Bake for 45-55 minutes or until tooth pick comes out clean.
