Ingredients

  • 1 cup butter or margarine, softened
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 5 eggs
  • 3 cups sifted all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

How to Make It

  2. Combine flour and baking powder; add to creamed mixture alternately with milk, beginning and ending with flour mixture. Stir in vanilla.
