Vanilla Sugar cake

Vanilla Sugar Cake
Rating: 4/5


-1 3/4 cup flour # 1
-1 cup sugar
-1 tsp. flax seed, ground in a coffee grinder
-2 1/4 tsp. baking powder
-1/2 cup butter or margarine
-2 eggs or egg replacer
-1/2 cup milk or substitute
-1/4 tsp. salt
-1 tsp. vanilla


1. Sift flour (or stir with fork) to break up clumps.
2. Mix dry ingredients.
3. Add butter, eggs, milk, salt, and vanilla.  Beat until well mixed. 
4. Spread in a 9x9 pan (greased).  Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 30 minutes.

This cake was yummy, though the way we made it was interesting.  My dad put it into a 9x13 pan and had to spread it around to completely cover the bottom of the pan.  It rose quite a bit in the oven, but it was still pretty flat.  It tastes really good.  The taste is actually exactly like sugar cookies!  My dad also tried to make his own powdered sugar, which half worked.  Then he added orange juice and made orange frosting, which I do not recommend.  We actually got the recipe from my great grandma's cookbook, the Joy of Cooking, but we altered the flour to make it gluten-free.  For the first cake, it was pretty good!
