Beat I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter!® Cooking & Baking sticks with sugar in large bowl with electric mixer on medium speed until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Beat in eggs, one at a time, scraping sides occasionally. Stir in vanilla. Reduce speed to low and beat in flour mixture just until blended. Evenly spoon into prepared pan.
Bake 65 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out completely clean. If cake starts to brown, cover loosely with aluminum foil. Let cool 15 minutes on wire rack; remove from pan and cool completely. Cut cake into cubes.
