Icing a cake is not one of my strong suits, so I usually avoid cakes the require icing. There are certain occasions when I have to suck it up – birthdays being one. This is a moist and easy cake.

Ingredients:
2 c flour
1 c sugar
1 TBSP baking powder
1 tsp salt
1/2 c butter, softened
1 c milk
1 tsp vanilla
2 eggs

Frosting:
8 oz butter, softened
8 oz cream cheese, softened
1 tsp vanilla
1 c powdered sugar.

For cake:
Preheat oven to 350. Prepare 2 9 inch cake pans.

Combine flour, baking powder and salt with a whisk, set aside.

Combine butter and sugar in a stand mixer, beat until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, then vanilla. Add 1/2 the milk and 1/2 the flour, best until combined. Add the rest, best well. Divide into 2 pans.

Bake 20 – 25 minutes until tester comes out clean.

Cool in pan 10 minutes, then turn onto rack to cool completely.
