Moist Butter Cake

Moist Butter Cake

I don’t think I have cooked anything from a blog as fast as this one.Last Sunday morning,I was home alone and as usual,was blogopping when I saw this utterly butterly Butter Cake at Maria’s blog.I read through the ingredients and surprisingly,I had everything ready in my kitchen.The recipe is super easy and can be almost termed as a beginner baker recipe.There is almost no effort involved.Literally dump everything into a mixing bowl,beat well till everything is mixed and there you have your cake batter ready.

I immediately got up and set about baking it.Only change I did was adding 2 eggs,instead of 3 as mentioned in the recipe.But still the cake turned out great..soft,moist and delicious.I have no memories of home-made cakes as baking was not a part of our cooking regime.I sure can relate to it in terms of the butter cake we bought from Best bakery.It tasted almost similar,but better.In fact,when I gave a slice to Ajay,he said it is better than McRennet’s Butter Cake,one which we used to buy regularly before my baking adventures.[*silently gushing in glory:)*]

Thanks Maria,for this Ultra simple,but fabulous recipe.We loved it.

Notes
  • The batter might look curdled, but its ok, go ahead and bake it. If you want a caramel flavor, substitute 1 1/3 cups (275 gm) firmly packed brown sugar for the caster sugar.

  33. The texture of your butter cake is very good. And nothing quite like a one bowl cake, very little washing up and an excellent cake at the end of it all!

  36. Its 1:30am here in Australia and I've just popped this cake into the oven *fingers crossed* this is my first cake ever! I don't bake, I just cook mains. Ha ha. Thanks for the recipe. I made it with brown sugar. The batter tasted so good! I was happy to just eat the batter without ovening I reckon.

  41. Hi Divya, love your recipes ....each one i have tried out is perfect. The Moist butter cake has come out exactly like the picture you have posted. My mother makes the same cake the only difference being she adds the eggs separately and beats the egg whites fluffy. Also does not add soda. THank you.
