Swedish Butter Cake

This Swedish butter cake will always hold a dear place in my heart.  It is the first dessert I remember my mom making.  I’ve loved this dessert from age two to age sixteen.  While simple, this cake is delectably buttery and sophisticated, and will be loved by children and adults.  It is good plain, but I like to refrigerate it and serve it with strawberries and whipped cream.


2 cups flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

1/4 teaspoon salt

2 sticks butter

1 1/2 cups sugar

2 eggs

3/4 cups milk

1 teaspoon vanilla

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.  Sift the flour, baking powder and salt in a small bowl and set aside.  Mix butter and sugar then add eggs one at a time.  Alternately add dry ingredients and milk.  Stir in vanilla, then bake 55ish minutes.  Enjoy!
