  3. In another bowl, beat the egg, butter and sugar with an electric mixer until smooth and creamy, about 5 minutes. Add the vanilla.
  4. With the mixer on low speed or using a wooden spoon, add the dry ingredients alternating with the milk. Mix only until the ingredients are combined; do not overmix.
  5. Pour the batter into the pan and bake until a toothpick inserted in the centre comes out clean, about 50 minutes. Let cool for a few minutes. Remove from the pan and let cool to room temperature. Serve with fresh fruit or a fruit coulis.
