Method

 
Pre-heat your oven to 180°C. Cream the butter until it is light and fluffy, then add the sugar and
beat again. Then add the eggs in one at a time, beating in between each one.

Sift the dry ingredients and add to the butter mixture. Slowly beat in the milk and vanilla essence.

Line two cake pans with grease-proof paper and divide the mixture evenly between the two.

Bake the cake for 25-30 minutes or until the cake is cooked – if pierced with a knife, the blade should run clear, if any batter sticks to the knife place back into the oven.

Place cakes on a cooling rack and once cooled, ice your cake with whatever you feel to be the best.

Tip of the day

 
Softening pears
Some pears come to market rock hard, but if left at room temperature they will soften. Tucking them into a sealed paper bag with a banana speeds the process.
