Cover the bowl, keep it aside.

For Cake
Preheat oven to 3500F.  Grease and flour cake pans.
In a bowl add dry ingredients. Sieve twice and mix well.
In another bowl, cream butter and sugar until fluffy.
Beat in eggs, one at a time. Add extract and mix until completely combines.
On low speed, slowly add dry ingredients alternately with milk just until blended.
Pour into a pan. Bake at 3500F for 30 – 35 mins.
Now insert the needle and if it comes out clean, cake is baked.
Let it cool for 10 mins before removing from pan.
