I seldom make butter cake and this artery clogging cake is Daddy’s favourite…the plain classic one. He always complained that I make nice cakes for the kids but what he likes I won’t make for him….ahem “ you have to be cruel to be kind “ heard of this ? I am actually kind to him by not baking butter cake for him coz it is not good for him. I know he can finish one whole butter cake all by himself in a day….and it can be disastrous to his health :(
But for this once , I decided to make one for him… but I shared out the cake with Claire and a few friends so that he doesn’t get to eat the whole cake all by himself…smart Momsie…rite? More people less share applys in this case LOL!
I once again took Amy Ong’s butter cake recipe from her blog - Cooking Crave . I know all her recipes are foolproof , so I make Daddy his favourite cake – the cake he wanted most – finally he gets to savour it :))
the butter cake has a fluffy and yet moist texture
and has a rich buttery taste
' Golden Churn ' brand butter gave the cake
the classic buttery taste...yum..yumm
rich and moist buttery taste....
makes Daddy happy but Momsie unhappy :(
this is a real classic butter cake...ask Claire , she
will tell you how good the cake is.....
I just found out that she loves butter cake too! :))
