  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened at room temperature
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs, at room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup milk

Optional Glaze or Frosting Ingredients:

  • Powdered sugar
  • Milk or water
  • Vanilla extract or other flavorings
  • Sprinkles or decorations (optional)


  1. Preheat Oven and Prepare Pan:
    • Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease and flour a 9-inch round cake pan or line it with parchment paper for easy removal.
  2. Combine Dry Ingredients:
    • In a medium bowl, whisk together the all-purpose flour, baking powder, and salt until well combined. Set aside.
  3. Cream Butter and Sugar:
    • In a large mixing bowl, cream together the softened butter and granulated sugar using a hand mixer or stand mixer until light and fluffy.
  4. Add Eggs and Vanilla:
    • Add the eggs one at a time to the butter-sugar mixture, beating well after each addition. Stir in the vanilla extract until incorporated.
  5. Mix Dry and Wet Ingredients:
    • Gradually add the dry flour mixture to the wet ingredients, alternating with milk. Begin and end with the flour mixture, mixing on low speed until just combined. Be careful not to overmix, as it can lead to a dense cake.
  6. Bake the Cake:
    • Pour the cake batter into the prepared cake pan and spread it evenly with a spatula. Tap the pan gently on the counter to remove any air bubbles.
    • Place the pan in the preheated oven and bake for about 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  7. Cool and Frost (Optional):
    • Allow the cake to cool in the pan for about 10 minutes, then transfer it to a wire rack to cool completely.
    • Once cooled, you can dust the cake with powdered sugar for a simple finish. Alternatively, you can prepare a glaze or frosting by mixing powdered sugar with a little milk or water and vanilla extract until smooth. Drizzle the glaze over the cooled cake and add sprinkles or decorations if desired.
  8. Slice and Serve:
    • Slice the delicious simple cake into wedges and serve it with your favorite beverage. Enjoy the moist and fluffy texture of this homemade treat!

This basic cake recipe serves as a great foundation for creativity. You can customize the flavor by adding lemon zest, cocoa powder, or other extracts to the batter. Experiment with different glazes, frostings, or fillings to elevate your simple cake into a delightful dessert for any occasion. Happy baking!
