@stormyknight: This one is a little different. It is for a 3 egg cake and it is superb! You will need:
1 cup butter, 2 cups sugar, 3 eggs (separated), ½ tsp. plus 1/8 tsp. of baking soda, 1 ¼ tsp. cream of tartar, 3 cups all-purpose flour, ½ tsp. salt, 1 cup milk, and 1 tsp. vanilla.
Cream together the sugar and butter. Blend in the egg yolks. In a separate bowl, mix together the vanilla and milk. Sift together the dry ingredients. Mix the dry ingredients and the milk mixture in with the butter and sugar.
Beat the egg whites until they are stiff. Fold into the batter. Pour the batter into 3 greased and floured 9 inch cake pans. Bake at 375 for about 20 minutes.
Use the icing of your choice.
