Put the butter and sugar in a bowl. Beat them together with a wooden spoon until thick and creamy.
Beat the eggs, then add them to the butter mixture bit by bit. Stir in the milk and vanilla. Sift the flour into a bowl. Fold it gently into the cake mixture with a metal spoon, do not beat it. Grease and line the cake pan. Pour in the mixture and smooth the top with knife. Bake the cake for 25-30 minutes until it is golden brown. Take it out of the oven and let it cool a little. Cut the cake into 3 inch squares. Use a spatula to lift them onto a wire rack. Let them cool.
