Recipe Box: Butter Cake


Who doesn't love butter cake or butter cookies? Me loving it!  This cake is our all time favorite.  It is delicious to be eaten with or without the buttercream icing. The cake is easy to prepare and the ingredient is accessible in supermarket.  Here goes the recipe!

250gm butter, unsalted and melted
200gm castor sugar
4 nos eggs
300gm plain flour
2 1/2 tsp baking powder

b) Frosting 
200gm butter, unsalted and melted
180gm icing sugar
1 tsp vanilla essence
1 - 2 tbsp fresh milk

Beat butter and sugar till light and fluffy.  Mix in one by one the eggs.  Fold in the flour and baking powder and mix well.  Grease the 8 inches round pan with butter and a little bit flour, pour in the batter and bake for 30 - 35 minutes with baking temperature 350 F.

For the frosting, beat the butter, icing sugar, vanilla essence and fresh milk till well blended

The above cake is without buttercream frosting
A moist and great cake for all!  Happy baking!


  1. That looks pretty easy. I might just try this and see if I can do it. Don't have a mixer though ^__^

  2. It's ok, can use balloon whisk ni but need more time to beat the butter, sugar and eggs, supaya your cake kembang :)

  3. Very tempting! If only I have an oven here, I'll try this recipe. Oven sudah kena hantar balik kampung, urang sana kampung lebih memerlukan.. Hehe..
