Yield: 1 servings
|2 cups||Sifted All-Purpose Flour|
|1 tablespoon||Vanilla Extract|
|2 teaspoons||Baking Powder|
NOTE: From Helen Hubbard (her recipe), Be sure to put the baking powder in last. If you DON'T, the cake will not rise properly. She also says it is very nice with fruit or juice plain with a cup of hot tea.
* Preheat oven to 350 F. Thoroughly grease a 9- or 10-inch tube pan.
1. Heat the milk and butter together in a saucepan until the butter is melted and mixture is lukewarm. In a large bowl, beat the eggs until foamy. Add the sugar gradually, as you continue to beat and beat until light and fluffy. Add the milk-butter mixture. Add the flour and beat well, then beat in the vanilla and salt. Last of all and most importantly, add the baking powder.
2. Pour and scrape the batter into the prepared pan. Bake 45 mins, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool on a rack. Additional suggestions from Helen: Cake could be dusted with confectioners' sugar or drizzled with chocolate glaze or even strawberry slices that are sugar-sprinkled. On occasion, she also has added a tsp of orange or lemon juice and a tsp of grated orange or lemon peel to the basic batter.
