Butter cake recipe, Tea time butter cake

Butter cake/Tea time butter cake as the name goes it is a soft, moist, fluffy and buttery cake prepared with basic ingredients like all purpose flour, sugar, eggs, vanilla syrup and a lot of butter. Yes that’s what makes it butter cake and different from the regular vanilla cake. This butter cake has an excellent color which is achieved by good quality butter and a texture that is dense which is almost close to pound cake but surely tastes different.

In this recipe I have used KIRKLAND UNSALTED BUTTER from Costco which makes cakes taste great, also gives them bakery like brown edges and they yield yummy ghee as well. You can check out the recipe here: Homemade ghee

Or you can make your own butter if you have lot of whipping cream at home in just 4 minutes for which the recipe is here: Homemade butter.

Basically butter cake calls for some eggs in its recipe but you can try using condensed milk to replace eggs only if you are a vegetarian/ allergic to eggs otherwise try using eggs as they make the butter cakes fluffy and tasty. I have used electric hand blender in this recipe but you can whisk it with your hand if you don’t have the electric one. It’s not going to make much difference but a little extra arm work. I am a self taught baker and love baking for my family so this recipe is for people like me.

Try baking this cake and you shall surely enjoy it during your tea time and so will your family. So let’s get to the baking of tea time butter cake.
