1 cup sugar

2 eggs, separated

Cream the butter until softened and slowly add the sugar, beating until light.

Add the egg yolks and vanilla, blend well.

Sift the flour, baking powder and salt onto a piece of wax paper.

Alternately blend the dry ingredients and the milk into the butter mixture in three stages. Beat until smooth.

In a separate bowl, beat the egg whites until stiff but not dry.

Stir a third of the whites into the cake batter and gently fold in the remaining.

Spoon into the prepared cake pans.
