  • Cream sugar and butter together in a mixing bowl. Add eggs, one at a time, beating briefly after each addition. Mix in vanilla.

  • Combine flour and baking powder in a separate bowl. Add to the wet ingredients and mix well. Add milk and stir until smooth. Pour batter into the prepared cake pan.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until the top springs back when lightly touched, 30 to 40 minutes.

  • Remove from the oven and cool completely.

Tips

A 10-inch round pan will produce similar results. To make cupcakes, line a 12-cup muffin tin with paper liners. Divide batter evenly among the prepared muffin cups, and bake in the preheated oven for 20 to 25 minutes.
