Butter Cake

This is the best butter cake I have baked and I have tasted. I think this butter  doesn't need much description. You just have to bake it and taste it :)

  1. Plain flour - 1 and 3/4 cup
  2. Sugar - 1 and 3/4 cup
  3. Butter - 225gm
  4. Baking powder - 1 + 3/4tsp
  5. Milk - 1/2 cup
  6. Egg - 4
  7. Vanilla Essence - 1 tsp
  8. Salt - a pinch, only if you are using unsalted butter
  9. Edible colour gel - any colour, a drop, optional
  • Preheat the oven for a minimum of 20 minutes
  • Don't over mix the batter
  • Cake can be made with no added colour to get cream buttery cake

  1. Preheat the oven at 150 degree Celsius
  2. Prepare a 9 inch spring form pan or other cake pan with similar volume by buttering it and placing parchment paper in the pan bottom ( I have used a small bread loaf pan and a 7inch round pan)
  3. Sift Flour, salt and baking powder well
  4. Beat butter until pale and fluffy.(approximately 1 minute using a hand mixer)
  5. Add sugar and beat for 2 more minutes in medium
  6. Add eggs, vanilla essence and beat for 2 more minutes in medium
  7. Add half the flour and beat using mixer for 30 sec until mixed
  8. Add milk and beat for 30 sec
  9. Add rest of the flour and mix until combine, approximately 1 minute.
  10. Divide the batter into 2 bowls, half and half(optional step)
  11. Mix any color you would like to have in one of the batter bowl and mix it (optional step)
  12. Spoon the batter from each bowl irregularly in the prepared cake pans. Make swirls in the double coloured batter in the cake tin using a spoon tail.
  13. Bake for 50 minutes until a skewer dipped in the cake centre comes out clean
