Cook Time: 20 minutes
Servings: 12

Ingredients

  • 3/4 tsp. of baking powder
    Baking
  • 3/4 c. of butter, at room temperature
    Milk, Eggs, Other Dairy
  • 1/3 c. of buttermilk
    Milk, Eggs, Other Dairy
  • 1 1/2 c. of cake flour
    Baking
  • 1/4 tsp. of salt
    Spices and Seasonings
  • 1 1/4 c. of white sugar
    Baking
  • 3 large whole eggs
    Milk, Eggs, Other Dairy

Steps

  • Preheat the oven to 350F.Sift the flour, baking powder and salt into a bowl.In a large mixing bowl, beat the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. I used a hand mixer but a wire whisk will do. DO NOT overmix: you will know you have overmixed if the butter solids separate from the fat.
  • Add the eggs, one at a time, beating after each addition and making sure that the egg is fully incorporated in the mixture before adding the next one.
  • Add the flour and milk in batches.
  • Add a third of the flour first, mix; add half of the milk, mix; add the next third of the flour, mix; then the remaining milk and, finally, the rest of the flour.If you’re making cupcakes, scoop into the holes of the cupcake/muffin pan (see tips).If you’re making a cake, pour the batter into a round 10-inch cake pan.
  • Bake at 350F, 17 to 20 minutes for the cupcakes, 40 to 50 minutes for the cake.Cool the cake or cupcakes in the pan for five minutes then transfer to a rack to cool completely.
