Granny Cake

1 c. butter
2 c. sugar
4 eggs
3 c. flour, sifted
3 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
1 c. sweet milk
1 tsp. vanilla

Cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each.

Sift together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Add the sifted dry ingredients to the batter alternately with the sweet milk, beating well after each addition. Blend in the vanilla.

Pour into a greased and floured tube pan. Bake in a moderate oven (350 degrees) for 1 hour or until the cake pulls away from the sides of the pan.

Leave plain or frost with Cooked Frosting. Serves 10-12.

Cooked Frosting:

2 egg whites, unbeaten
1 & 1/2 cups sugar
1/8 tsp. salt
1/3 c. water
1 tbsp. light corn syrup
1/2 tsp. vanilla

Combine all ingredients in the top of a double boiler, beat for 1 minute. Then place the mixture over boiling water and beat for 7 minutes. Remove from over the boiling water when the frosting stands in glossy peaks. Continue beating until the frosting is cool and thick enough to hold firm swirls. Makes enough to frost one cake.
