Ingredients

  • 1 cup butter room temperature
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup milk
  • fresh berries for garnish

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Grease and flour a 12-cup bundt pan. Tap out any excess flour.
  • In a large mixing bowl, add butter and sugar. Beat on medium with a hand mixer until creamed. 
  • Add the vanilla extract and the eggs one at a time. Beat each egg in before adding the next. Scrape the sides of the bowl. 
  • In a separate bowl, add in the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Whisk to combine. 
  • Measure out the milk.
  • Alternately add the flour and milk always starting and ending with the flour. I added the flour in 3 parts and the milk in 2 parts. Scrape down the sides and mix to combine.
  • Pour the batter into the prepared bundt pan. Spread it out evenly in the pan using a spatula. 
  • Place into the oven and bake for 1 hour to 1 hour and 15 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. 
  • Let cool for 5 minutes and turn out onto a cake plate. Let it rest for another 5 minutes. Tap the bundt pan with a knife to help loosen the cake from the pan.
  • Garnish with fresh berries.
