Fine Butter Cake

Has been quite awhile I last baked a butter cake [I think Mrs Ng SK Butter Cake] which was good. Here is another lovely butter cake of Florence from Do What I Like. I'm not too good at describing how the cake is but Florence says it's an unbeatable fine butter cake, very very fattening but very tasty. The crumbs are fine with nice buttery taste, perhaps it's that we used good quality butter. Mine may not be that fattening as I used yoghurt instead of whipping cream. Honestly, I like this cake, it's easy with some basic straight forward steps.
Recipe Source - Do What I Like Fine Butter Cake [with some modifications]
[loaf pan size - 3.5" x 3.5" x 8"]
150 gm good quality butter [I used Golden Churn brand]
1 tbsp corn oil
110 gm castor sugar
1/3 tsp salt
1/2 - 1 tsp vanilla essence
3 eggs
140 gm cake flour
40 gm cornstarch
1/3 tsp baking powder
3-5 tbsp whipping cream/milk [I used plain yoghurt]

  1. Mix and sieve cake flour, cornstarch and baking powder together in a mixing bowl. Sieve twice.
  2. Cream butter, corn oil, sugar and salt in a mixing bowl until light and fluffy.
  3. Beat in eggs, one at a time. Beat well after each addition.
  4. Add in flour mixture and mix at low speed until well combined.
  5. Stir in whipping cream/milk/yoghurt [any one which you are using].
  6. Pour batter into a lined loaf pan and baked in a preheated oven at 180 degrees C for 35-45 minutes.

Notes - After 10-12 minutes baking, remove from oven and make a lengthwise cut on the surface of the batter with a knife so that the cake will 'explode' nicely with a neat line in the middle.

Hi Kimmy, this loaf of butter cake is so nicely browned, looks moist and delicious ! A slice for tea/coffee break 'shiok'.

Fine butter cake...drooling ....
By the way , Kimmy, where to buy the Ang chow red in colour in Penang ..Air Itam?

Kimmy said...

Hi Jozelyn, I have been baking lots of light cakes, this cake is a heavy one, still many people like it because of the buttery taste.

Kimmy said...

Hi Karen, this is a good butter cake recipe. If my hubby doesn't comment, it must be acceptable cos' his has high expectation of yummy food.

Kimmy said...

Hi Victoria, I'm so used to seeing the holes in chiffon cakes. Looking at this one with fine texture to me is a bit alarming, but it was snapped up very fast at my mum's place.

Kimmy said...

Hi 董夫人, you can get the Ang Chow from the bigger grocery stalls in the market. I bought mine from the stalls selling vegetarian food ingredients at Lip Sin Jubilee wet market.

Hi Kimmy,

This is one of highly reviewed butter cake that I have seen. Yours looks so perfect with such a super-fine texture :D

Hi Kimmy! These days I like butter cake. I find Golden Churn to be the best.

~董夫人~ said...

yeah, kimmy ,tq... i often go this wet market... can use to cook mee suan right?

Kimmy said...

Hi Zoe, I didn't expect the texture is so fine. I thought a good butter cake should be buttery, light and fluffy.

Kimmy said...

Hi Phong Hong, I prefer Golden Churn butter when baking layer cake and butter cakes but the price has escalated.

Kimmy said...

Hi 董夫人, this is the regular market where I get most of my cooking/baking ingredients too. Sometimes, they let me 'hutang' too and call me 'thow keh so'. Paiseh, lol.

Kimmy said...

Thanks Mui Mui, I was happy when my hubby said the cake is good. I'll reserve some for you when I bake this again.
