I have several recipes of Butter Cake and I found this one is the BEST among all. Moist, very buttery taste and soft. This butter cake recipe is definitely a keeper. Try it out and let me know the result ok? Each time when I get to know that there will be guest coming to visit me. Butter Cake will always be my first choice as I know it'll be well accepted by most of us. Kids love it so much, adults and elderly too.
It's perfect for tea-time while chit-chating with group of friends ~ yum...yum!
My favourite butter brand for baking...!
Separate the egg whites and egg yolks into 2 different bowls
250 gm Butter (I prefer SCS or Golden Churn Brand) - softened
85 gm Castor Sugar
1 tsp Vanilla Essense
A pinch of Salt
4 Egg Yolks
1 tbsp Milk
200 gm Cake Flour (if self-raising flour are used, just omit the 5 gm baking powder)
5 gm/ 1 tsp Baking Powder
4 Egg Whites
85 gm Castor Sugar
- Preheat oven at 175'c. Grease or line the 8" baking pan.
- Sifted together flour and baking powder. Set aside.
- Beat together butter, sugar, salt and vanilla essense until creamy and light with mixer.
- Add in egg yolks, one at a time and beat until creamy. Add in milk and mix well.
- Fold in the sifted flour slowly spoon by spoon into mixture till well mixed.
- In a separate clean bowl, whisk eggs whites till foamy then add in sugar gradually. Beat to a soft peak and fold 1/4 into butter mixture. Mix well and fold in the rest.
- Pour batter into baking pan and bake at 175'c for about 40-45 mins or until cooked (insert a skewer in the middle of the cake and it come out clean)
p/s: I bake bigger cake using 25" x 30" retangular cake pan and use 1 1/2 recipe stated above. I bake my cake at 160'c as my oven temperature tend to get too warm and will burn top of my cake.
