Butter Cake

I haven't had a butter cake for ages. Therefore decided to make one. This cake reminds me of the birthday cake that I had during my young days where the bakery will cover the cake with colourful butter icing.
  • 250g butter
  • 200g castor sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence
  • 200g self raising flour
  • 4 tbsp fresh milk
  • 1/2 tsp salt


Grease and line a 20cm cake tin with greaseproof paper. Preheat oven at 170 degree Celcius.

Sift the flour and salt together and set aside.

Cream butter and sugar until light and creamy. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition until the mixture is light and fluffy. Add in the vanilla essence.

Fold in the sifted flour gradually into the mixture. Add in the milk and mix until well combined.

Turn out mixture into the prepare tin. Bake in preheated oven for 50 minutes or until cooked through when tested with a skewer.
