DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350.
  • Grease and flour pans lightly. I used 2 9" square. You should be able to use 2 8"-9" rounds just fine.
  • Cream together butter & extract.
  • Add sugar slowly until all is added and it is mixed well.
  • Add eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each addition.
  • In a separate bowl sift flour, baking powder and salt together twice.
  • Now add flour mixture, alternating between the milk and flour. Mixing well after each again.
  • Pour equal amounts into each pan and give it a tap on the counter to remove any air pockets.
  • Start checking at 25 minutes to prevent burning on the bottom and sides.
  • Keep checking every 5-10 minutes depending on the wetness of the tester.
  • If at 25 minutes the cake still wiggles when you open the door then you may need the full 30-40 minutes.
