Ingredients for butter cake recipe
- 200 gm butter
- 200 gm sugar
- 4 pcs (200 gm) egg
- 180 gm flour
- 20 gm cornflour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 tablespoon milk powder
- 4/5 drops vanilla essence
Process for butter cake
Keep the butter at room temperature. Take the butter in a large bowl. Mix butter and sugar with a hand grinder or with a big long-handled spoon. Stir the mixture until like cream. Add egg one by one with the butter mixture. Add vanilla essence to the butter mixture and stir again gently.
Mix white flour, corn flour, baking powder, and milk powder. Strain all ingredients with a strainer, so that those are mixed gently. Add the flour mixture slowly to the butter and egg mixture.
Preheat the oven to 200°C for10 minutes. Take a long mold(Non-stick metallic box for making cake) and grease it with butter. If you want, you can use any kind of molds like round shape or rectangle shape. We usually used a long-shaped mold for the plain cake. Put the mixture in the mold up to 2/3rd of the mold should be filled.
Put the mold in the oven; set the temperature to 180°C and bake for 40-45 minutes. After 35 minutes you will see that the box is filled and color of the cake is brown, pass a clean thin stick through the cake and check. If the stick comes out clean, then the baking is completed. When the liquid cake is pasted on the stick, the cake needs more time (about 5-10 minutes). Baking varies from oven to oven. So if you want to buy the best electric oven check Amazon for that.
Take the cake out from the oven after baking is completed and keep for 10-15 minutes at room temperature for cooling. Slice the cake into about ½ inch thick pieces and serve it to your beloved family members. You will get the actual flavor if you eat the cake when still it is warm.
