                     SNACKIN’ CAKE

1/2 cup butter
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
2/3 cup milk 

2 1/2 cups flour (sifted)
3 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract 

Cream butter, add sugar gradually, blend well. Beat eggs well and add to butter and sugar mixture. Add milk to butter mixture a little at a time. 

Mix sifted flour, salt, and baking powder, a little at a time, into the mixed wet ingredients. 

Finally, add vanilla. Use two 9" x 12" buttered cake pans. Bake for 30 minutes at 375 degrees. 

Traditional snacking cake says to sprinkle sugar on top of layers before baking, then slice into triangles and eat.  

Non-traditionalists, can use your favorite frosting frosting and stack the layers for a more usual layer cake.
