Depending on the oven, it may take more than 40 minutes to bake the cake. To prevent the top of the cake from browning too fast, cover the top of the baking pan with a sheet of aluminum foil.

Ingredients

  • 3 cups flour
  • 2 tablespoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 stick butter -- (plus a little more)
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups milk

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375F. 
  2. Lightly grease the pan (loaf pan, mini loaf pan, 8×8, or 9×9) with some butter.
  3. Mix the flour and the baking powder together and sieve. Add in salt and mix well. Set aside.
  4. Use an electronic beater to mix butter and sugar until well combined or pale yellow in color. (Note: Sugar has not dissolved yet).
  5. Add in the first egg. Beat well after each addition of egg until creamy.
  6. Scrape down the sides for even mixing.
  7. Fold in the flour into the mixture and mix well.
  8. Finally, add in the milk
  9. Pour the mixture into the greased baking pan. Shake it lightly to distribute cake mixture evenly.
  10. Bake until golden brown and cooked, about 40 minutes. Use a cake tester to test if it’s cooked.
