  • For the Cake
  • 1 1/2 cup (3 sticks) salted butter, softened
  • 3 cups white granulated sugar
  • 6 large eggs
  • 3 cups sifted flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 pint whipping cream
  • For the Glaze (optional)
  • 2 cups sifted powder sugar
  • 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter, melted

  6. Add eggs, one at a time, just until blended after each addition.
