Mari's Basic White Cake
1/2 cup butter
1 1/4 cups sugar
Beat the above ingredients together, add alternately...
2 cups flour with 2 1/2 teas. baking powder, 1/2 teas. salt
3/4 cup milk
1 teas. vanilla or 1 teas. fresh lemon juice
stir well and add 1 cup of coconut (optional)
pour in round cake pan, bake at 350 F./180C. for 25-30 minutes
I use this cake to serve with fresh fruit and ice cream or whipped cream (or both)- I also frost this cake with white butter cream frosting, or chocolate cream frosting, or just sprinkle with powdered sugar when cool.
