The name says it all in this simple recipe. Some days we may want something sweet without all the fuss or maybe we just are pinched for time. This is a delicious golden cake that takes minutes to whip up and bake. A perfect partner for this dessert is fresh berries and whip cream. I went with the creamy homemade whip cream although I opted for powdered sugar in this picture.
1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2/3 cups sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
2/3 cup milk
1/4 cup butter softened
1 teaspoon vanilla
1. Pre-heat oven to 350F. Grease an 8-1 ½ inch round cake pan; set aside.
2. In a medium mixing bowl combine flour, sugar, and baking powder. Add milk, butter, egg and vanilla. Beat with an electric mixer on low speed until combined. Beat on medium speed for 1 minute. Spread into the prepared pan.
3. Bake about 30 minutes or until a wooden toothpick comes out clean. Cool in pan on a wire rack about 30 minutes.
