White cake

I have several white cake recipes that I use but this one is simple and so delicious.  My favorite to pair with my favorite chocolate frosting.

4 1/2 cups cake flour
1 1/2 cup milk
9 large egg whites at room temoerature, lightly beaten
1 tsp. Vanilla
3 tsp. Almond extract
2 tablespoons baking powder
1 1/2 tsp. Salt
2 1/4 cup sugar
2 sticks butter at room temperature

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Flour 3 9 inch cake pans.   Sift dry ingredients together.  In mixer beat butter with sugar for about 2 minutes.  In a bowl whisk together milk, eggs snd extracts.  With beater going add 1/3 flour mixture then 1/3 milk mixture.   Continue alternating mixtures till all is blended,.  Turn mixture on med high and beat for about 2 minutes. Divide evenly between pans and bake 25 to 30 minutes.  Do not over bake. Let cool in pans for 5 minutes then invert onto racks and cool completely.   Frost with your favorite icing.
