How to make it?
Preheat the oven to 160 degrees Celsius. Start mixing the butter and sugar in a bowl until it’s smooth. Add the flour, eggs, and milk and mix until it’s a smooth mixture. When you have to mix it by hand: add the eggs one by one. Add the mixture to a greased cake tin and place it in the oven for 60 minutes. Check whether the cake is done with a spike (it has to come out dry) or test the bounciness from the top.
