Yum! Yum! Yum! Ate way too much in my tum tum tum! This butter cake is so simple to make and it is so delish! Very similar to a pound cake but not as dry or dense. I had to use up some strawberries and had these ingredients on hand so here I am, sharing this gorgeous cake recipe with you. It’s perfect for the first day of spring! Top it with powdered sugar and fresh fruit and you are good to go! Have a slice for breakfast even, with a cup of coffee and you are ready to tackle the day.

What you will need:

9 inch round cake pan sprayed with non-stick spray and lined with parchment paper

1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup unsalted butter at room temp
1 cup granulated Β sugar
2 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/2 cup milk (preferably 2% or whole)
Powdered sugar (for dusting)
Fresh fruit for topping

Preheat oven to 350 degrees fahrenheit. In a bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder and salt. Set aside. In another large bowl, beat butter and sugar until smooth. Add in eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in vanilla. Slowly beat in flour mixture, alternating with the milk until everything is combined.

Pour into prepared pan and bake for about 25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean. Allow to cool on a wire rack for at least 15 minutes before inverting to cool completely. Dust with powdered sugar and serve with fresh fruit. Enjoy!
