#3840 - Dense Butter Cake

(by Shirley McNevich)

1 cup softened butter
1 1/2 cups white sugar
2 eggs
1 TBSP vanilla OR almond extract
2 1/2 cups flour
2 tsp. baking powder
a pinch of salt
Domino's powdered sugar (for dusting)

In a mixer add butter and white sugar--beat. In a cup add the eggs--beat with a fork. Reserve 1 TBSP of the beaten eggs. Add the rest of the beaten eggs to the mixer--beat. Add vanilla--beat. Remove bowl from mixer. In a separate bowl add baking powder, salt and flour--whisk to mix. Add flour mixture to the batter--stir with a wooden spoon until stiff dough forms. Press HALF of the batter into two greased 8" cake pans. Use a pastry brush to brush the reserved beaten eggs over the top of each batter. Bake at 350 degrees 30-35 minutes or until top is golden brown. Cool completely, then let them sit overnight. The next day dust the tops of each cake with powdered sugar, then cut into wedges to serve. Note: if you eat them the same day you bake them, they won't have much flavor.
