Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup (113g) butter, softened
  • 1 cup (200g) granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup (123g) whole milk, room temperature
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp. pure almond extract, optional
  • 1 1/2 cups (180g) cups cake flour
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 4 (120g or 4 ounces) egg whites, room temperature

Instructions
