Irish Tea Cake

Happy ST Patrick's Day! 
To be completely honest I'm not sure how authentic this recipe is. But I do know it's really good! It's definitely not that stunning a cake, so if you want to wow with the appearance of this cake, it probably isn't the cake for you.
As for reveiws, I served it this evening to a bunch of friends and they all loved it. It's one of those kinds of cake desserts that you don't feel guilty about eating.


1/2 Cup room temperature Butter,
1 Cup Sugar,
2 Eggs,
11/2 Teaspoons Vanilla,
13/4 Cups all-purpose Flour,
2 Teaspoons Baking Powder,
1/2 Teaspoon Salt,
1/2 Cup Milk
1/4 Cup Powderd Sugar(for dusting)

What To Do:

Preheat the oven to 350 degrese.
Grease and flour a 9 inch cake pan. I like to line mine with wax or parchment paper.
In a large mixing bowl, cream together the butter and the sugar until fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time, mixing each one throughly before adding the next. After adding the eggs, add the vanilla. 
In a separate bowl whisk together the flour, baking powder and the salt. Now, alternately add the flour and the milk, starting with the flour. I add half the flour then half the milk. 
Spread the batter into the cake pan, and bake for about 19-25 minutes, or until a tooth pick comes out with just a crumb or two.
Let the cake cool for 10-15 minutes before moving to a cooling rack. Try two let the cake cool right side up to prevent geting lines on the top. After the cake is completely cool, sift the powdered sugar evenly over the top.

 Please not, the cake in the picture is not burnt, the lighting was just a little weird.
I hope have a great St. Patrick's Day!
