1/2 cup butter softened
1 cup milk
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 cups plus 2 tablespoons of all-purpose flour
1 1/2 cups of granulated sugar
4 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
4 large eggs whites.
powdered sugar for dusting (optional).

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.

With a handheld or stand mixer with paddle attachment, cream together your milk, butter and vanilla for a few minutes.

In a separate bowl, place your flour, baking powder, salt and sugar, and mix these all together.

Add flour about one third at a time, mixing until all is incorporated.

Now put in your egg whites, and mix until just combined.

Pour your batter into your oiled iron skillet and bake for 40-45 minutes, let cool a little and serve with powdered sugar on top or with fresh fruit and ice cream.
