1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup white sugar

1 3/4 cups all purpose flour

1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup confectioners' sugar for dusting
Preheat oven to 350-degrees. Grease and flour a 9-inch round pan.
In a medium bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs, one at a time then stir in the vanilla. Combine the flour, baking powder and salt; stir into the batter alternately with the milk. If the batter is too stiff, a tablespoon or two of milk may be added. Spread the batter evenly into the prepared pan.
Bake for 30 to 35 minutes in the preheated oven, until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Cool in pan on a wire rack, then turn out onto a serving plate. Dust with confectioners' sugar right before serving. Recipe makes one, 9-inch round cake.
