  • 2 cups (454 g) butter, room temperature
  • 3 cups (600 g) granulated sugar
  • 6 large eggs, room temperature
  • 4 cups (500 g) all-purpose flour, sifted
  • 2/3 cup (163 g) whole milk


  1. Preheat oven to 350 ° F.
  2. Grease 3 - 8x4 inch loaf pans, then line with parchment paper.
  3. In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
  4. Beat in the eggs one at a time.
  5. Beat in the flour alternately with the milk, mixing just until incorporated.
  6. Pour batter evenly into loaf pans. Bake for 70 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cakes comes out mostly clean.

  7. Remove from oven and allow to cool in pans for 10 minutes, then remove from the pans. Strip off the parchment paper and cool completely on wire racks.
