1 2 3 4 Cake

This cake is an easy at 1-2-3. The ingredient proportions are laid out in the title for this delicious cake recipe. Try this with a homemade chocolate buttercream or just go for the stuff out of the can. We won't tell.

Cooking Time: 1 hr 15 min

Ingredients
  • 1 cup butter
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 3 cups flour
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 4 eggs, separated
Instructions
  1. Cream butter (or shortening) and sugar. Add egg yolks, one at a time, and beat between each addition.
     
  2. Add vanilla and then alternately add the dry ingredients and milk. Fold in beaten egg whites. Put batter in a greased tube pan. Bake at 325 degrees F until light golden brown, about 1 1/4 hours. 
Notes

Buttermilk may be substituted for milk.

Eggs may be added at the beginning, unseparated.

If making layers (3), bake at 350 degrees F for 30 minutes.

Variation: Line the well-greased pan with scented geranium leaves.
