Here is the recipe for my Mom's 2 egg butter cake.

2 C flour
3 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 c butter (or margarine)
1 C sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
3/4 C milk

Mix flour, baking powder and salt.  Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy.  Add unbeaten eggs - 1 at a time - to butter/sugar and beat thoroughly after each addition.  Add vanilla
Add dry ingredients alternately with the milk, stirring only enough to completely blend.  DON'T overbeat.
Recipe says to put in 2 - 8" layer pans.  I make mine in a 9 x 13.
Bake at 375 for about 25 minutes.

Use as is for shortcake, or ice or top with filling when cool.
