Get out your cake ingredients and a medium sized bowl. Pre-heat your oven to 180 celcius/350 farenheit. Cream the butter and sugar together in your bowl until it is pale and fluffy. When pale and fluffy, mix in eggs on at a time, beating it well between each, with the last egg mix in a tablespoon of flour untill, if held upside down, will slowely fall from the spatula. Put the mix into a 8"x8" pan and a muffin pan with 6 pits, then, bake it for 30 to 40 minuites on the mmiddle rack.
