Mom's Scratch Anisette Cake Recipe
2 1/2 cups flour
2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
3/4 cup butter
1 3/4 cups sugar
1 1/4 cups milk whole
2 to 3 teaspoons anise extract (or Sambuca but this won't leave as strong as a taste of anise)
1 tablespoon vanilla
pinch of salt
Heavily grease a bundt or tube pan. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Cream the sugar and butter for at least 3 minutes until light and fluffy. Add the milk, eggs, flavorings. Beat the flour in next with all the rest of the ingredients for two minutes.
Pour into the prepared pan, bake around 45 minutes or until the toothpick comes clean. Cool either dust with powdered sugar or use a thin drizzle of powdered sugar and water frosting over the top.
