This classic recipe makes a pleasantly light cake that is wonderful by itself or covered in whipped heavy cream and seasonal fruit.
INGREDIENTS | SERVES 12
- 1 cup butter

Add the eggs, one at a time, beating 1 minute after each.
While beating continuously, gradually add the sugar, then flour, followed by your flavoring of choice.
