I always make this for my hubby, because he likes having cake and coffee while working at home. He would also bring slices of this and the other cakes I make, to the office. Does that make me a domestic goddess? *sniggers* Yeah, right!
TAKES 1 hour
MAKES 12 servings
1/2 cup butter
1 1/3 cups sugar
5 egg yolks
2 1/4 cups cake flour
2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla
3/4 cup milk
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (177 degrees C). Grease and line a 9x5-inch loaf pan.
Beat the butter until creamy and soft. Gradually add sugar until light and fluffy. Add egg yolks, one at a time, mixing well after each addition.
Sift the cake flour, baking powder and salt together. Add to the creamed mixture alternately with the vanilla and milk. Blend well.
Pour the batter into the prepared pan. Bake in the oven for 40 to 45 minutes or until cake is golden brown.
Remove the cake from the oven and place on a wire rack to cool for about 10 minutes. Then remove the cake from the pan and cool completely.
Serve with a smile!
