Butter Cake

This butter cake aku buat tanpa menggunakan mixer. The taste? Memang sedap! But I think kalau guna mixer, it will be lagi gebu. I'll try again bila balik KL nanti. The cake cracked sebab oven rumah K.Ta panas sangat. Actually it's not a full fledged oven, it's a toaster oven. Maka, kurang sesuai untuk bakar cake. Tapi tak kesah la, asalkan boleh still membakar kan. Yang penting, rasa kena sedap! :D

Adapted from Taste.com.au

250g butter, softened
1 cup caster sugar (I reduced the sugar to 3/4 cup)
2 teaspoons vanilla essence
3 eggs (large)
2 1/2 cups self-raising flour
2/3 cup milk

  1. Preheat oven to 180°C/160°C fan-forced. Grease and line an 8cm-deep, 19cm (base) square cake pan with baking paper.
  2. Using an electric mixer, cream butter, caster sugar and vanilla in a medium bowl on medium-high speed until light and fluffy.
  3. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating to combine. Add half the flour. Stir to combine. Add half the milk. Stir to combine. Repeat with remaining flour and milk.
  4. Spread mixture into prepared pan. Bake for 1 hour or until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean. Stand in pan for 10 minutes. Turn out onto a wire rack to cool. Dust with icing sugar. Serve.
