Cream butter and 1/2 of sugar. Add vanilla. Sift together flour, baking powder, and salt. Add the flour mix and milk alternately to the butter-sugar mixture. Mix thoroughly.

Personal Notes:
Joan and I made this many, many times when we were in 4H. It is very good to eat as a snack cake or serve with berries as one would a shortcake. This is a recipe from the 1950's or earlier.
