I can not keep this cake in the house! It is absolutely the most incredibly delicious vanilla cake recipe that I have ever made. Makes an excellent basic vanilla cake or cupcakes and may be paired with any frostings you love: chocolate, vanilla, coconut, or caramel!
Add the softened butter and beat with an electric mixer at low speed, until the mixture looks sandy.
Combine the milk and vanilla and add, all at once. Mix at low speed for 30 seconds, then increase the speed to medium and beat for 30 seconds. Scrape the bottom and sides of the mixing bowl.
With the mixer running at low speed, add 1 egg. Increase the speed to medium and beat for 30 seconds.
