This recipe is located on the back of the Swans Down Cake Flour box but can also be found here http://www.prestoflour.com/Portals/TheArtOfBaking/portal.aspx?tabid=14&rid=507

I really enjoyed this cake though it did have more of an almond flavor than I anticipated. When I make this again I think I would try only using vanilla to see how that would taste.

  • 1 cup of butter softened
  • 2 cups of sugar
  • 2 cups of cake flour, sifted
  • 2 teaspoons of baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon of almond extract

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Grease and flour your cake pan or line muffin pan with paper cups.
  3. In a large mixing bowl cream the butter and gradually add the sugar. Cream until light and fluffy.
  4. Add the eggs one a time. Beat well after each addition.
  5. In a different bowl sift the flour with the baking powder and salt.
  6. Add the flour mixture alternately with the milk and flavorings to the creamed butter mixture.Beat after each addition until smooth.
  7. Pour the batter in the cake/muffin pans. Bake for 25-30 minutes. Less depending on your cake/muffin size.
  8. Cool in the pans for ten minutes. Remove from the pans and finish cooling on a rack.
