Butter Cake recipe (Requested by Ninang)

Baking cakes are fun~! This recipe is simple and it works.


250g butter

1 ½ cup castor sugar (normal sugar is also ok)

4 eggs

4 cups of self-raising flour

1 cup of fresh milk

Vanilla essence

1/4 teaspoon of sodium bicarbonate

1/4 teaspoon of double raising powder

Filling (Whatever you want. Chocolate rice or choc chips, mix fruits, cherries, sultana,...)

How to:

1) Make sure butter is in room temperature (not too hard). Beat butter and sugar until fluffy.

2) Add egg one by one. (Put the first egg then beat. Put the second egg and then beat…you get the idea.)

3) Add vanilla essence (as much as you like. I always put 1 ½ teaspoon or more because I like the smell of vanilla)

4) 2 cups of self-raising flour and then fold using a metal spoon. Cease folding when flour is no longer visible. Do not over fold.

5) Add the fresh milk.

6) Add the remaining 2 cups of flour. Fold.

7) Add sodium bicarbonate and double raising powder. It’s ok if you don’t have any double raising powder (Put 1/2 teaspoon of sodium bicarbonate if you don't have double raising). The cake will still rise.

8) If you have some fillings, insert now and fold.

9) Heat the oven.

10) Bake at 170’ C for about 45 minutes.

11) Let me have a slice of your cake~!

P/S: If your filling is sweet, don't put in too much sugar. I like to put 1/2 to 3/4 cup of sugar depending on my filling. My sister once replaced fresh milk with susu cap junjung and she said it works just as well. I've never tried it though.

P/P/S: Good luck Ninang~!

P/P/P/S: HAPPY NEW YEAR 2011~! May we all be blessed with good health, love and wealth~!
