210 ml buttermilk / milk

Method :
Heat oven at 170 degrees celcius.....
Beat butter till creamy. Add sugar and vanilla. Beat until well combined.
Add eggs one by one.
On low speed, add flour and milk alternatively in 3 batches. Add baking powder, salt and mix.
Turn batter into a 9 inch prepared pan and smooth surface with a spatula.
Reduce oven temperature to 150....Bake for about 60 mins or till skewer inserted comes out clean...Baked mine 5 minutes longer..
