Serves 8-10 | Prep Time 10 | Cook Time 65


1/2 lb. butter
2 cups powdered sugar
3 large eggs (I used extra-large)
1 2/3 cups all-purpose flour
1 Tbsp. vanilla or lemon extract

Preheat your oven to 325 degrees F. Use the butter wrappers to grease the inside of an 8-inch loaf pan (I got a long narrow pan at Ikea 4 1/4-in. by 11 1/2-in. top measurement and like the size for this).

Cream the butter on high speed of electric mixer, then very slowly add the powdered sugar, mixing about 5 minutes.

Add one egg at a time while continuing to beat, alternating with the flour. Add the extract of your choice and beat another 2 minutes.

Spread the batter evenly in the prepared loaf pan (this batter is very thick).

Bake for about 65 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

Cool cake in the pan on a wire rack for 30 minutes, then remove to serving plate. Slice and enjoy.
