– 1/2 teaspoon salt
– 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, at room temperature
– 1 cup granulated sugar

1. Preheat your oven to 350° F. Grease a 9-inch round cake pan with butter or non-stick baking spray.

2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.

3. In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs, one at a time, then stir in the vanilla extract.

4. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, alternating with the buttermilk, beginning and ending with the dry ingredients. Beat until just combined.

5. Pour the batter into the prepared cake pan and bake for 30-35 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean.

6. Allow the cake to cool for 10 minutes before turning it out onto a cooling rack. Serve warm or at room temperature. Enjoy!
