How to make it

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Grease and flour 3 (9-inch) cake pans.
  • Using an electric mixer, cream butter until fluffy.
  • Add sugar and continue to cream well for 6 to 8 minutes.
  • Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition.
  • Add flour and milk alternately to creamed mixture, beginning and ending with flour.
  • Add vanilla and continue to beat until just mixed.
  • Divide batter equally among prepared pans.
  • Level batter in each pan by holding pan 3 or 4 inches above counter, then dropping it flat onto counter.
  • Do this several times to release air bubbles and assure you of a more level cake.
  • Bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until done.
  • Cool in pans 5 to 10 minutes.
  • Invert cakes onto cooling racks.
  • Cool completely and spread cake layers with your favorite frosting to make a 3-layer cake.

    I've made this cake practically as long as I've been cooking. It's a great cake, and makes good pound cake too.
