Vanilla Butter Cake

Makes 1 bunt pan or 3 8inch rounds… for mini cupcakes I used 1/2 batch and it made 48 cupcakes.

  • 1 Cup Butter, softened
  • 1 1/2 Cup Brown Sugar
  • 4 Eggs
  • 2 Tablespoons Vanilla extract
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon Salt
  • 1 Cup Milk

Beat butter and sugar until fluffy.

Add in eggs, one at a time, mixing just until incorporated after each egg.

Add in vanilla and stir.

In a separate bowl combine dry ingredients. ( I always cheat this step if at all possibly because I hate making more mess than needed.      To skip this step for this recipe:  add 1 cup of my flour and the baking soda, powder and salt in; mix. Then add in my milk and mix. Then add in my last cup of flour…)

Add half of the dry mixture into butter/sugar mixture and beat.

Add in milk and beat until combined then add in the remaining flour mixture.
