Ingredients

  • 2/3 cup butter, softened
  • 1-3/4 cups sugar
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs, room temperature
  • 2-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1-1/4 cups 2% milk
  • FROSTING:
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 3 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 4 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 3 to 4 tablespoons heavy whipping cream
  • Assorted fresh berries

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Grease a 13x9-in. baking dish.
  2. Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy, 5-7 minutes. Add vanilla and eggs, 1 at at time, beating well. In another bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder and salt; beat into creamed mixture alternately with milk. Transfer to prepared dish.
  3. Bake until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean, 40-45 minutes. Place on a wire rack; cool completely.
  4. For frosting, beat butter until creamy; gradually beat in confectioners' sugar until smooth and light in color, about 3 minutes. Beat in vanilla and 3 tablespoons cream until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes; thin with additional cream if desired. Spread over cake. Before serving, top with berries in a patchwork quilt pattern.
