BUTTER CAKE

cake 1

A basic butter cake has a moist, sweet crumb and is very versatile.  We can flavor the batter with extracts & aromas, slice the cooled cake and fill it with cream, preserves, or fruit, glaze or frost it, or simply enjoy a plain slice with a  cup of tea or coffee.  They are not hard to make, her is my favorite, never-fail recipe.

Ingredients :
  1. All purpose flour - 3 cups (450 gms)
  2. Baking powder - 1 tbsp
  3. Salt - 1/2 tsp
  4. Butter - 1 cup (250 gms)
  5. Sugar - 2 cups ( 400 gms)
  6. Vanilla extract - 2 tsps
  7. Large eggs, seperated - 4 nos
  8. Milk - 1 cup

2.   Combine the flour, baking powder, salt in a large bowl.  Beat the butter, sugar and vanilla in a large bowl until creamy.  

3.   Add the eggs yolks one at a  time, beating until just blended after each addition.  Gradually beat in the mixed dry ingredients, alternating with the milk.
