Butter Cake Recipe

03.05.2013 - Batam.  I always love the traditional Butter Cake.  I used to make a traditional butter cake with 9 eggs, a recipe from our cousin who loves baking until today.  I have not been busy searching for a great butter cake recipe since i know i have the best in hand.

One day, i was out of 9 eggs and was thinking to bake myself a butter cake! Nah!! problem comes!! how to make a butter cake without 9eggs in my mind. so i search high and low for a less egg butter cake. and finally after reading and watching so many types of butter cake recipes from so many good bakers, which they use less eggs.  So i give it a try without using so many eggs. Here i come to modify one! my 4 eggs recipe taste just as good as 9 eggs. Save us a lot of eggs!!

Tell you, is not easy to modify the recipe, i have to test my comment sense and baking skill...hehe...Anyway, the cake came out perfectly good.   Im using the same old steps for this recipe.  Anyone can bake this. It is easy.

Note : To make a delicious butter cake is to use a good quality butter, such as i recommend to use

Wood Dunn Dairy Maid Pure Creamery Butter ( if you use this butter,  i guarantee your butter cake can smell a mile away!! this is highly recommended ) , Golden Churn Pure Creamery Butter, Elle & Vire Unsalted Butter, PRESIDENT Butter, LURPAK Butter, Anchor unsalted Butter. 


230g butter, softened
230g self raising flour / cake flour
140g caster sugar
4 eggs seperated
100ml fresh milk
1 tbsp vanilla extract
2 tsp baking powder


* Grease pan with butter.  I used rectangle aluminium cake pan instead of loaf pan.  You can use 2 butter loaf pans or a round aluminium pans for this cake.

*Separates 4 eggs yolks and white.  in a bowl egg yolks are gently mix with a fork and put aside

* Beat butter till pale yellow, add in sugar beat till pale and double volumn. Add in egg yolk one at a time into 8-10 times slowly to the butter mixture.  Beat and scrap the side of the bowl, beat & scrap method to finish it off.

* Sift in flour, baking powder and vanilla and mixed well with a hand mixer until almost combined and stop. Do not over mixed it.

* Add milk and mix this finale stage with a spatula.

* A grease free bowl, beat 4 egg whites until soft peak. Mixed in 2 spoonful beaten egg whites with spatula into batter mix well and fold in the batter into the balance egg white bowl. This way the batter very well combined.

* Fold in batter to pan and Bake 180c, 45mins.

*Inserted a skewer / satay stick into the centre comes out clean means cooked. Turn out onto a cooling rack and leave to cool.

My son is busy with his share! hehehe :P
