DIRECTIONS

  • Cake:
  • Set oven to 350°F.
  • Combine flour, baking powder & baking soda, salt & set aside.
  • Place milk over medium heat to about 150F (hot but drinkable temp).
  • Cream butter, sugar & vanilla until creamy, add egg & beat until combined & light.
  • With a ladle or pouring in a thin stream while mixing or whisking, SLOWLY add the milk to butter mix so you don't cook & scramble the egg.
  • Add the flour mixture & mix gently until just combined.
  • Pour batter into buttered & floured cake pan & bake for 25 to 30 minutes (check with toothpick at 25).
  • Cool for 10 minutes then turn out onto a rack to cool completely.
  • When cool, cut cake in half horizontally with serrated knife or bread knife & gently remove the top layer for icing. You can also leave the cake whole & just use icing on top.
  • Icing:
  • Combine all ingredients & beat or whisk until well combined, if icing seems too thick & difficult to work with, add half to one teaspoon of milk.
  • Spread half on the bottom layer of cake, replace top of cake then spread remainder of icing on top of cake.
  • Switch out the Cream Cheese for 5 tablespoons of butter to make a Buttercream Icing.
