Basic Butter Cake

Suddenly, I craved for Butter Cake. It was yours truly, NOT the kids.

I have tried many basic butter cake recipes before and the following is the best to fulfill my desire. The recipe was copied from The Star newspaper under Amy Beh's column many years ago (can't remember exactly when). I feel so lucky to have the copy of the recipe as to me, this is the best Butter Cake ever.

looks yummy!!!

Here is the recipe:
Basic Butter Cake

250gm butter
200gm castor sugar
4 eggs
1 tsp vanilla essence
200gm self raising flour, sifted with ½ tsp salt
4 tbsp fresh UHT milk

• Grease and line a 20cm cake tin with greaseproof paper. Preheat oven to 170C
• Cream butter and sugar until light and creamy.
• Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition until mixture is light and fluffy.
• Add vanilla essence.
• Fold in sifted flour gradually to mix.
• Finally stir in milk. Mix until well combined.
• Turn out mixture into prepared tin.
• Level out mixture at the sides but allow a shallow well in the center. This is to enable the cake to level up evenly during baking.
• Bake in the preheated oven for 55-60 minutes or until cooked through when tested with a skewer.
