DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat the oven to 375°F.
  • Butter and flour the sides of two 9-inch round cake pans.
  • Line each pan bottom with a piece of parchment paper cut to fit pan.
  • Into a medium bowl, sift flour, baking powder and salt together 3 times, and set aside.
  • Using a mixer with the whisk attachment on medium speed, beat the butter until its light and fluffy (about 3 to 5 minutes).
  • Add sugar and beat until blended.
  • Add the eggs one at a time, mixing well after each egg.
  • Beat in the vanilla extract.
  • On low speed, add the flour mixture to the butter mixture in thirds, alternating with the milk (starting and ending with the flour), scraping the bowl as needed.
  • Beat just until blended.
  • Pour the batter into the prepared pans, bake for 25 to 30 minutes (or until firm to the touch and golden).
  • Remove from the oven, place pans on cooling racks and let cakes cool in the pans.
  • Remove cooled layers from pans, remove parchment from bottoms and frost as desired.
