This is my simple vanilla cake recipe. It's very rich and moist and can be topped with any frosting.

2 sticks butter, room temperature
2 cups sugar
3 eggs, room temperature
2 tsp vanilla extract
2 cups sifted all purpose flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1 cup whole milk

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cream butter and sugar with electric mixer/stand up mixer, add vanilla and eggs. Sift flour and other dry ingredients in a separate bowl. Combine 1/3 part of flour mixture in with the creamed butter mixture alternating with 1/3 part milk while mixing the batter. DO NOT OVERMIX. Pour into two 9" round prepared (greased) pans and bake for 25 minutes. Cool and frost with your favorite frosting.
