Busy-Day Cake

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 egg
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.

Yields: 8 servings
