1/2 tsp Salt 

1 c Milk

2) Add sugar, beat until smooth 

3) Add eggs one at a time, beat well

4) Add flavoring (almond, butter [optional])

5) Add cake flour (sifted), baking powder, salt, alternating with milk (you can sift the baking powder, flour, and salt together) 

6) Grease pan

7) Bake at 350 for 1 hour

8) Bake at 325 for 15 minutes

If you don’t like almond I sometimes make lemon, leave out the almond and use lemon curd instead...just stir it in and it leaves chunks of lemony deliciousness
