Preheat the oven to 35o°F. Grease two 8-by-2-inch cake pans with butter. Line the pans with parchment paper as well.

 In another bowl sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, then mix the salt in the flour well and keep it aside.

Cream the butter and castor sugar using a handheld or an electric mixer or with a whisk until light and fluffy.

Now slowly add one egg at a time and keep whisking at low speed. Beat in the vanilla extract as well.

Alternatively beat in flour mixture and milk, beginning and ending with flour mixture, mix until well combined. Don’t over beat.

Now divide and pour the batter in to the prepared pans and smooth the tops. Bake it in the oven for 32 to 35 minutes. Let the pans cool for 10 minutes.

Run a knife around the edges of the pans and invert the cakes onto a wire rack or plate and let it cool completely.

Then place the cake bottom side up and remove the parchment paper.

Delicious Simple & Versatile Vanilla cake is ready. Enjoy the cake by applying some frosting or just like that.
