Makes 2 eight or nine inch cakes
2 1/2 cup flour
2 Tbs. baking powder
1 cup butter
1 1/8 cup milk
1 cup sugar
1 tsp. salt (unless using unsalted butter, if so then adjust to 1 Tbs.)
Step 1: Seperate eggwhite from the yolk, set aside yolk. In a small bowl whip eggwhite until fluffy, set aside.
Step 2: In a large bowl combine all dry ingredients and stir together.
Step 3: Add the milk egg yolk and butter to dry ingredients and mix on medium until smooth.
Step 4: Preheat oven to 400 and grease pans.
Step 5: Into a large bowl pour previously beaten eggwhites (note: do not beat again) and then pour the batter in on top of the eggwhites. Now, fold eggwhites gently into cake, this causes the cake to be "fluffy".
Step 6: When oven has preheated pour batter into cake pans and insert them into the oven. For added effect, sprinkle colored-sugar over the top of the cakes before inserting them into the oven.
Bakes: 20-25 minutes
