Mix in the butter in a cake mixer or handheld mixer until creamy. Add the sugar in a bowl until light a fluffy.
while the sugar and butter is mixing, crack the eggs in a bowl. Once the butter and sugar has finnished mixing tip in the eggs one at a time. If the mixture begins to
curdle add a pinch of flour.
get a suitable round tin and line it with baking paper, is you do not have baking paper just grease the tin with butter.
Put it in the oven for 40 mins or until when you put a skewer in the middle it comes out clean.
wait 5 mins before turning the cake out on a wire rack to cool completely.
