Busy, busy, busy!

 Busy Day Cake
  • 8 tablespoons butter (1 stick), at room temperature
  • 1 1/4 cups granulated sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • 2 cups sifted all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk, at room temperature
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
Preheat the oven to 375°F. Butter a 9x9 inch pan, set aside.
Beat the butter and sugar in the bowl of a stand mixer until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating to incorporate after each addition. Scrape down sides of bowl. Add the flour in 3 parts, alternating with the buttermilk, starting and ending with flour. Make sure each addition is incorporated before adding next. Add the salt, vanilla, baking powder, and nutmeg and mix until combined.
Spread the batter in the prepared pan, smoothing the top. Bake until top is golden and tester inserted in center comes out clean, about 40 minutes. {We added cocoa powder to ours, but that is completely optional}

I hope you enjoy this cake as much as we do!
