There is no one better to celebrate than our 1,600+ farmer-owners who have helped keep families fed across America for 100 years. Comment below to share your praise for the farmers who started it all and for the farmers who keep us going.

Ingredients

2 cups all-purpose flour

2 teaspoons baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 1/2 cups sugar

1 cup Land O Lakes® Butter, softened

4 large Land O Lakes® Eggs

1 tablespoon vanilla extract

3/4 cup milk

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Heat oven to 350°F. Grease and flour 2 (9-inch) round baking pans. Set aside.

  2. STEP 2

    Stir together flour, baking powder and salt in bowl. Set aside.

  3. STEP 3

    Beat sugar and butter in bowl at medium speed, scraping bowl occasionally, until creamy. Add 1 egg at a time, beating well after each addition. Add vanilla. Add flour mixture alternately with milk, beating at low speed after each addition just until mixed.

  4. STEP 4

    Divide batter evenly between prepared pans. Bake 30-34 minutes or until toothpick inserted near center comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes on cooling racks.

    Tip: Perfectly Baked Cakes

    To avoid baking a dry cake always start with the low end of the baking time range listed. You can always add another couple minutes but there's no going back if it's overbaked.

  5. STEP 5

    Loosen edge of cake by running knife around inside edge. Carefully remove cake from pan; cool completely.

Tip #1

This cake works well with most frostings, we're partial to chocolate but try any of these from our Frosting Recipes Collection.
