- Line them with parchment paper and butter the paper. Sift together the flour, baking powder and salt. Beat the butter and sugar together till light and creamy. Break the eggs in a separate bowl and beat lightly, add ¼ cup of the eggs to the butter mixture and beat on medium speed until incorporated. Repeat with the remaining beaten eggs in 3 equal portions. Add vanilla and beat again.
- Add half of the flour mixture and beat in low speed until mixed well, then add the remaining flour and beat until no white streaks are visible. Pour the mixture in the prepared pans and bake for 1 hour and 10 minutes. Let cool in the pans for 30 minutes then invert on a wire rack to cool.
