Cooking Recipes Catalogue

This is one of my mother's cake recipes for a birthday. I love this recipe and it tastes great.

INGREDIENTS (for 2 servings):


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour one 9x13 inch pan or three 8 or 9 inch round layer cake pans.
  • Cream the butter and sugar together until smooth and fluffy. Mix in the vanilla extract.
  • Separate the eggs and set the egg whites aside. Add the egg yolks one at a time to the creamed mixture, beating after each one.
  • Measure the baking powder into the flour, sift a little of the flour into the creamed mixture. Continue adding the flour and the milk alternately, while continually beating the mixture. Beat the cake batter until a few air bubbles show.
  • Beat the 4 egg whites with a dash of salt until stiff. Gently fold egg whites into the batter. Pour batter into prepared pan(s).
  • Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) until cake(s) test done, approximately 25 to 35 minutes.
