  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line a 9x5-inch loaf pan with parchment paper, leaving an overhang over 2 sides.
  2. Combine butter, white sugar, brown sugar, vanilla extract, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl; beat with an electric mixer until fluffy. Beat in flour. Beat in eggs one at a time, scraping the bowl after each addition. Pour batter into a 9x5-inch loaf pan.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 45 minutes.
  4. Lift cake out of the loaf pan using the overhanging parchment paper. Place on a wire rack and cool completely before slicing, about 30 minutes.

This recipe is a keeper. I added 1 T. milk and added the flour/baking powder/salt after eggs were incorporated. Baked 60 minutes in a glass loaf dish. I really liked using the parchment paper...

not bad but i had to bake for 1 hour and 20 mins. After 45 mins the top was still watery looking.

Made with different favoring but made the same and is delicious.

Will make it often; quick, easy and almost ate it all by myself!!

Instead of using Allpurpose flour, I substituted it with, Swan Down Cake flour.
