Simple Butter Cake

This is my basic butter cake recipe. I found this is easier to make & came out well. And though I try to decorate cakes,I like butter cake without any icing on it. :)

Ingredients (For 8inch/ (20 cm) baking pan)
200 g Butter in room temperature
200g sugar
200g flour
3 large eggs in room temperature
2 tsp Baking powder
1 tsp vanilla essence
2 tbs milk

Preheat oven for 350F.Grease the baking pan. Line the bottom of the pan with a parchment paper
In a bowl combine flour & baking powder, Sift, keep aside.
Beat butter & sugar together in low speed for 2 minutes. Then gradually add eggs for this mixture and mix in high speed for about 2 minutes until the batter become smooth.
Then add vanilla essence & milk.
Also gradually add flour while beating.
Once it becomes a smooth batter, fill the baking pan with batter.
Bake for about 40 to 45 mins or until golden brown.
A tooth pick inserted to cake should come out clean when it is baked.
Allow to cool the cake few minutes & transfer to a wire rack.
Cool completely before any decorating.
