Butter Cake

Butter Cake is one of my all time favourites.  I can wallop pieces after pieces. Love the soft texture and the buttery flavour .

Do try, you will fall in love with this yummy soft cake.  Your family will keep demanding and you will be tired baking.

250 gm unsalted butter, at room temperature
200 gm all purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
200 gm sugar ( I reduced the sugar to 175 gm)
4 eggs
½ tsp salt
4 tablespoons milk
1 teaspoon vanilla essence

Preheat the oven to 180 °C.
Lightly grease the pan with some butter.
Mix the flour and the baking powder together and sieve. Add in salt and mix well. Set aside.
Use an electric beater and beat butter and sugar until light  and fluffy for 5-6 minutes.
Add egg and beat one at a time. Scrape down the sides.
Add in vanilla essence and mix. Add  flour into the mixture and mix well. Finally, add in the milk.
Pour the mixture into the greased baking pan. Tap the pan lightly to level the mixture evenly.
Bake until golden brown and cooked, about 40-45 minutes. Use a skewer to test if it’s cooked. 
Remove it from the oven and let cool on the wire rack for another 5 minutes. Slice and Serve warm.
