Here is one that looks good. It came from Gemini’s collection.
PREPARE CAKE LAYERS: Heat oven to 350 degrees.Grease and flour two 9″ round
cake pans. In large bowl with electric mixer at medium speed, beat 1/4 cup
butter, 1 cup sugar, eggs, 2/3 cup milk, 1 tsp. vanilla and baking powder
about 4 minutes until thoroughly blended and smooth. Spoon batter into
prepared pans; bake 30 minutes until wooden pick inserted in center of each
layer comes out clean. Remove layers to wire racks to cool completely.
PREPARE EGG CUSTARD: In 2 qt. saucepan, stir 2/3 cup sugar, cornstarch and
salt until thoroughly mixed; slowly stir in 2-1/2 cups milk until smooth.
Bring to boil over medium heat, stirring constantly; cook 1 minute until

lightly beaten egg yolks into hot mixture, stirring rapidly and constantly
to blend and keep smooth. Return mixture to low heat; cook 1 minute longer.
