    1. Preheat your oven to 180°C. Grease and line the base of a sponge cake pan with parchment paper.
    2. In a medium bowl, sift together the all-purpose flour, baking powder, and a pinch of salt. Set aside.
    3. In a large mixing bowl, cream together the softened butter and confectioners’ sugar until light and fluffy.
    4. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in the vanilla extract.
    5. Gradually add the sifted dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, alternating with the room temperature milk. Begin and end with the dry ingredients. Mix until just combined.
    6. Pour the batter equally into the cake pan and smooth the top with a spatula.
    7. Bake in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes or until the cake is golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the centre comes out clean.
    8. Remove the cake from the oven and let it cool in the pan for 10 minutes. Then, transfer them to a wire rack to cool completely.
