Yellow Cake

This is a nice plain yellow cake, very wholesome.

2 cups sugar
1 cup milk
4 separated eggs
3 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 cup unsalted butter, slightly softened
3 cups white flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
4 teaspoons baking powder

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees farenheit. (In general, whenever I cook most anything, I preheat the oven. Food does not like going into a cold oven). Blend the salt, baking powder, and flour together. Mix the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. Beat in egg yolks one at a time along with a teaspoon of the flour mixture. Then, mix in the remaining flour, the vanilla extract, and the milk. In another large bowl beat the egg whites with an electric beater until they are very stiff. Fold these gently into the mixture. Divide into two buttered and floured nine inch cake pans. Bake for 25 minutes. Test for done-ness with the tip of a knife. Allow them to cool, then fill with raspberry (or some other ) jam.

Let's see... sugar, separated eggs, white flour... I think maybe you need to look up the word "wholesome" or else that was said with tongue firmly in cheek! ;)
