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
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.
I LOVE THIS STUFF!!!!
