Golden Butter Cake

This recipe comes courtesy of a co-worker of mine.  She periodically bring this cake in to share with us and it is a favourite of mine.  She shared the recipe with me and I decided to make it today.

It began with butter and sugar which I beat until it turned light and fluffy then I added four eggs.   Once the eggs, butter and sugar were mixed well, I added flour and baking powder.  Her recipe called for vanilla but I was doing this my way, so I went with almond extract instead.
