    Bake at 350 for 20-30 minutes, depending on the oven and pan used. Toothpick comes clean when done, edges begin turning golden.
    Remove to cooling rack.
  3. Mix up the glaze and have it ready when the cake comes out of the oven. Mix the powdered sugar, milk and vanilla until well blended and the consistency of a thick syrup. Add more sugar or milk to get it just right. Immediately begin brushing the warm cake with the glaze mixture, brush evenly using all the mixture. Let cake cool completely. This cake is delicious with fresh fruit, we love it with peaches or strawberries, but its wonderful with just a glass of ice cold milk...
