Why I Love This Recipe

I have had this one soooo long I have no idea where it came from.

Ingredients You'll Need

3/4 cup (1-1/2 sticks) margarine, softened
1-1/2 cups sugar
3 medium eggs
2 tsps. vanilla extract
1 tsp. salt
3 tsps. baking powder
3 cups flour
1-1/4 cups milk


Preheat oven to 350F

Cream together margarine & sugar until they are light & fluffy.

Add all 3 eggs, vanilla & salt, beat until the ingredients are well mixed.

Add the baking powder, flour & milk. Beat again until well mixed.

Beat for 2 full mins. at high speed. The mixture should begin to look light, smooth, & creamy.

Whatever pan you decide to use make sure it is well oiled.

2-9" layer cake pans...bake 25 to 30 minutes

9x13" rectangular pan....bake 35 to 40 minutes

Cup cakes....increase oven temp. to 375....bake appx. 20 minutes-makes 28
