"I don't make a lot of cakes but since I had a ton of butter in my fridge that I was lucky to receive from my son's work place, I came accross this recipe in my boxed favorite cakes recipes files, I can't remember even making it but I guess I did way back so I decided this was the one I would make, well, I can see why it was stashed in my favorites, this cake is buttery yummy! I also added in a teaspoon of Watkins butter extract because I had it in my cupboard. This cake is so good all that's needed is a light dusting of powdered sugar . IMPORTANT! you must beat the eggs for minimum 5 minutes, and after adding the sugar beat for another 5-6 minutes, the sugar granules should be dissolved and the egg/sugar batter must be very thick."
