Recipe: Vanilla Butter Cake

I made this cake a few weeks ago for Easter.(The night before, actually.)  It was the first time I had ever made this recipe, and I wasn't so sure about how it was going to turn out, but my family loved it.  The confectioners sugar kept absorbing into the cake, but that just means it's really moist!  Haha.  My family loved it.  We paired it with icecream and whipped cream.  You know, the staples!  

1 cup (2 Sticks) of Butter
1 1/2 cups Brown Sugar
4 Eggs
2 tbsp Pure Vanilla Extract
2 cups Flour
1 tsp Baking Soda
1 tsp Baking Powder
1/2 tsp Salt
1 cup Milk
Confectioners Sugar


Beat butter and brown sugar on high for three minutes with an electric mixer. Then beat in one egg at a time.  Then add in the vanilla extract.

Stir together the flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt.

On low, beat half of the dry mixture into the wet mixture.  Then slowly add the milk.  Then mix in the rest of the dry mixture. 

 After everything is blended, put the mix into a lightly greased or floured fluted tube pan.  

Bake at 350F for 45 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. 

When ready to serve, sprinkle confectioners sugar on top.
