Yellow Cake I (D, TNT)
Source: Translated from Brazilian cookbook, "A Boa Mesa" (The Good Table)
Serves: 8 to 10

3/4 cup butter or margarine
1-1/2 cups sugar
3 eggs
2 cups sifted all-purpose flour
2-1/2 tsp. baking powder
3/4 cup milk
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 tsp. almond essence
Any frosting or cream you like

Preheat oven at 375°F or 190°C. Prepare 2 9" (22.5cm) round cake pans greased and sprinkled with flour. (This if you plan to fill the cake with cream, if not use only one pan, I actually prefer to bake it whole and cut it before filling).

Cream butter or margarine with sugar. Add beaten eggs, a little at a time, beating well after each addition. Add and mix alternating the flour with baking powder and the milk (begin and finish with flour mixture). Then add the essences.

Pour batter into the prepared pans, leveling the surface. Make some cuts in the batter with a spoon to take of any air bubble. Bake until you make the tooth pick test and it comes out dry. Let cool the with the pans over a rack for 10 minutes, and then take the cakes off the pan and let them cool. Make cream or cake frosting and fill and cover them.
