resolutions and champagne cake

This new year is going to be nothing but adventure.  These days, I'm overwhelmed a lot of the time, but I have a feeling it will all be worth it.  So, I'm going to share a fancy new years recipe.

Okay, pretties, let's get down to business. Champagne cake.  You could make this for any fancy/plain occasion.  It is fluffy, not too sweet, and so so pretty.  

2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour

3 teaspoons baking powder

1 teaspoon salt
2/3 cup butter
1 1/2 cups white sugar
3/4 cup champagne
6 egg whites
gold star sprinkles from Michael's

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Butter a 10 inch round cake pan.
In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugar until very light and fluffy. 

Sift flour, baking powder, and salt together, and then blend into creamed mixture alternately with champagne.

In a large clean bowl, beat egg whites until stiff peaks form. Fold 1/3 of the whites into batter to lighten it, then fold in remaining egg whites. Pour into prepared pan.

Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 25 to 30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the cake comes out clean.

I hope 2013 holds epic things for all of you, my lovely readers. What are some of your goals?
