Dolly's awesome yellow cake recipe

Dolly's cake is the best homemade yellow cake I've tasted. I can say that since I have tried way to many other recipes.
 She took her cooking blog down last year.So when I lost my recipe book in the move I contacted her on face book. She was kind enough to message me the recipe.   I copied and pasted it . Which is why it on the left hand side of the page.
I was afraid if I tried to changed it's format on the page I would leave something out. I tend to do things like that.

If you love homemade cakes, this is a recipe YOU HAVE TO TRY !

Ingredients 1 cup butter  softened 2 cups sugar 4 large eggs at room temperature 3 cups cake flour or all purpose flour 1/2 teaspoon salt 2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder 1 cup milk 1 teaspoon almond extract 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Preheat Oven to 350 degrees Grease with shortening and flour 3-9inch cake pans. Cream butter until whipped; add sugar a little at a time mixing thoroughly and continuously. Do this for a few minutes to insure a smooth texture. Add eggs one at a time mixing well between each one. Combine the flour with the baking powder and salt in a bowl. You can use a whisk to mix thoroughly. Have your milk handy too for when you need it. You will add about a third of the flour and mix well. Add a third of the milk and mix well. Continue doing this until you have used all of your flour and milk mixing well. Add your vanilla and almond extracts mixing well. Pour your batter evenly into the cake pans. I use a huge spoon to ladle mine in one spoon at a time for even layers. Bake for 18 to 25 *minutes checking and inserting a wooden toothpick or cake tester to see if done. It will come out clean if cooked. Remove from oven and cool on wire racks for 10 minutes. Take from pans and cool completely on wire racks.* Check the earliest time because homemade cakes can overcook so quickly and they may be dry if they do so. Tip* Do not over beat batter.
