(This is the BEST butter cake recipe ever. Updated with new photos. Originally published in 2008.)

Even though I am still a rookie in the baking department, I am slowly but surely getting the hang of things, especially baking cakes.

I love baking cakes; I find it rather easy, well, if I choose a simple recipe. I especially enjoy baking cakes in the weekends because nothing tastes better than a cup of hot coffee with a freshly baked cake—while I read through my magazines or newspaper on a Sunday morning. And then, on Monday, I can heat up my leftover cake in the microwave for 10 seconds and have myself a nice breakfast to beat my Monday blues and start off my hectic work week on the right foot. I love cakes, and now I love baking them.

One of the cakes I absolutely love is butter cake–plain old simple but always good butter cake. It calls for really common ingredients that everyone has in their fridge or pantry, and that totally fits my bill in terms of convenience.

For butter cake, I used to cheat with store-bought yellow cake mix—Duncan Hines, Pillsbury, or Betty Crocker. Now I can just bake butter cake at home.

    So do u suggest I use unsalted butter or reduce. My margarinne to 225g or 200grams….I like the taste too,but my ppeps said its too oily I als notice wen you take a chunk and squeeze the oil comes out…

  2. esther says:

    The cake normalized today….it was really tasty….I think I will teach my students this but if I reduce the butter to 225grams will it affect its out come?

    Hi Do you use bleached or unbleached all purpose flour for this recipe? Thanks

  4. Yvonne says:

    Hey your butter 2 and 1/3 stick ( 250gm) means 250 x 2 and 1/3 ? 583gm of butter?

  5. Yvonne says:

    what -.- our butter is one stick 227 gm, and i followed ur 2 and 1/3 stick. ruined my cake

    • Yvonne, I am so sorry to hear that. This website is in US measurement because I am based here and the 1 stick of butter here is very small…in the recipe it says 2 1/3 stick butter (250g).

    Hi, what pan size should I use?

    Hi, i just baked. taste is good. however the inner texture doesn’t like a cake, how could it so?
    Besides reducing 200g sugar to 100g, everything exactly the same.

    Hi Bee, thanks for the recipe it smells & tastes absolutely yummy. However, the bottom part of my cake came out looking undercooked, very moist, but skewer comes out clean. I have a oven thermometer so I don’t think it’s the oven temp, I’ve tried baking longer but it stays the same. Is there any other possible reasons about this? Thanks.

    Would that be okay even without vanilla essence? I couldn’t find it here in Taiwan. i just got vanilla powder.

    Thank you!

    Hi, does the fat content of the milk matters? Can I use 1% milk for this recipe?
