1 egg yolk

Beat butter and sugar 2 minutes until light and fluffy. Add egg and yolk, beating until combined.

Whisk together dry ingredients. Add 1/3 of dry ingredients to butter mixture, beat well, add half of milk, beat well. Continue adding dry ingredients & milk, beating well after each addition, ending with dry ingredients.
