MAKES FOUR 6-INCH ROUND CAKES (See note below)
Another great breakfast cake.
1 cup butter
4 cups all purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 cups sugar
4 teaspoons baking powder
1 cup milk
Preheat oven to 350° F. Grease four 6-inch pie pans. Combine the
butter, flour, sugar, salt and baking powder. Mix with your hands to
form crumbs. Take out just enough for crumbs on top of cakes, about 3/4
cup. Set aside. To the remaining crumbs add the eggs and milk; beat
well. Divide batter evenly among prepared cake pans. Sprinkle with
crumbs. Bake for 35-40 minutes or until cake tester inserted in center
comes out clean. Remove from oven and set on racks to cool slightly,
then remove cakes from pans and cool completely.
Note: We often use a 13x9x2-inch cake pan. Bake at the same temperature
for the same amount of time.
