  2. Whisk the flour, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl
  3. Heat the butter and milk in a medium saucepan over medium heat until the butter melts. Stir in the vanilla.
  4. With an electric mixer on medium - high speed, beat the eggs and sugar until pale and thick, about 6 minutes.
  5. Using a rubber spatula, fold in the flour mixture and milk mixture alternately until just incorporated.
  6. Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, 30 to 35 minutes.

    Let cool slightly in the pan, about 10 minutes.
