This recipe was found in Olga’s vintage wooden box. It is typed on an index card and has the word (Swell) written on the top right corner. Makes my mouth water just thinking about it.


1/2 cup butter

1 cup sugar

2 eggs

2 1/2 tsp baking powder

1 3/4 cup cake flour

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 cup milk

1 tsp vanilla


Cream the butter. Add sugar and continue beating until very light and fluffy. Add the beaten egg yolks. Then add the dry ingredients sifted together, alternately with milk, beginning and ending with the flour. Stir in vanilla and fold in the stiffly beaten egg whites.Fill pans 2/3 full of batter and bake at 375 degrees for 15-25 minutes. Yields 18 cup cakes.

If baking a 2 layer cake , use 2 round cake pans and bake at 350 degrees for 15-25 minutes.
