Date: Tue, 8 Mar 1994 21:39:27 GMT Grease and flour two 9" pans. Sift flour, baking powder, & salt together.
Cream butter & sugar until smooth. Add eggs, one at a time. Alternately add milk and flour mixture, beating after each addition. Add vanilla or almond extract. Spoon into pans, level off, and push slightly toward sides of pan. Bake at 350 for 30-35 minutes. Cool in pan for 10 minutes, then invert onto a rack and cool completely. Frost as you wish.
Marzipan Cake: add 4 oz canned almond filling with the eggs, and top with a thinly rolled layer of marzipan.
Orange Cake: Add zest of 1½ oranges and replace milk with fresh orange juice, use orange extract instead of vanilla or almond.
