DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350°.
  • Cut wax paper to fit the bottom of a 9 x 1 1/2-inch round pan. Spray the pan with cooking spray, place the wax paper in the pan and spray the paper.
  • In a large mixing bowl combine the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt, mixing well.
  • Combine milk with vegetable oil and stir thoroughly.
  • Add the milk/vegetable oil mixture, butter and vanilla to the flour mixture and beat with an electric mixer on medium to medium-high speed for 2 minutes, scraping sides of bowl as needed.
  • Add the eggs and continue beating an additional 2 minutes. Pour batter into the prepared pan.
  • Bake at 350° for 20 to 25 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted near center of cake comes out clean, or until cake springs back when touched lightly in the center.
  • Cool cakes on wire racks for 15 minutes; remove from pans and cool completely.
  • Frost as desired.
