    1-2-3-4 Cake

    1 cup butter

    2 cups sugar

    3 cups flour

    4 eggs

    3 teaspoon baking powder

    1 teaspoon vanilla

    1 teaspoon lemon or orange extract

    1 cup milk

    Cream butter, add sugar and mix. Add eggs, one at a time and beat well. Add flour and baking powder, sifted together, alternately with the milk. Add vanilla and orange or lemon extract. Bake in greased and floured pan at 350 until cake springs back in middle when checked or toothpick inserted in middle is clean.

    This 1-2-3-4 cake was made to be eaten without icing back years ago but you could add a glaze to it that corresponds to the extract you are using. You can play around with the flavors by using different extracts or if you want all one flavor like vanilla use 2 teaspoons and don’t use the other flavored extracts. My Nanny referred to this as a Preacher or Visitor Cake when I was young as it was easy and quick to make for company to go with coffee or tea.
