La Reine Cake (the Queen)

Yield one 3- layer cake

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups butter or margarine, softened
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 1/2 cups sifted cake flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup plus 3 tablespoons milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Vanilla Frosting

How to Make It

  1. Cream butter in a large mixing bowl; gradually add sugar, beating until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.

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