Butter Cake

I made this recipe awhile ago, but I've been out of town and not baking. This made a killer strawberry shortcake. It was moist and just dense enough. The recipe would actually make two 9" round cakes or one 9x13" cake, but it was for a small dinner party. I halved the recipe and made one 9" round cake. It is so easy and incredibly delicious and you could do so much with it. I will absolutely make this again.

Butter Cake (From Land-O-Lakes)
3 c all purpose flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
2 c sugar
1 c butter, softened
4 eggs
2 tsp vanilla
1 c milk

Preheat the oven to 350F. Combine flour, baking powder and salt in medium bowl and set aside.

Beat sugar and 1 c butter in large bowl at medium speed, scraping the bowl occasionally, until creamy. Add eggs, two at a time, beating well after each addition. Add 2 tsp vanilla. Reduce speed to low; add flour mixture alternately with 1 c milk; beating well after each addition. (End with the flour)

Pour batter into greased 9x13" baking pan. Bake 45-55 min or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool completely

Note: A 9" cake will bake for 29-34 min. Make sure to grease and flour the 9" round pans or grease and line with parchment. This way they won't stick when you take them out of the pan.
