Soft fluffy BUTTER CAKE │Easy & Moist butter cake

In this video I’ll be sharing my very best butter cake recipe! It took me about 15 tries to get to this cake, as I was struggling to get the perfect balance of flavour and softness, but I finally got it! This butter cake is soft, fluffy and goes perfectly with a hot cup of tea! I LOVE having butter cake slightly warm, so if I’m having it the next day, I’ll heat it up in the microwave for about 10-15 seconds. If you haven’t tried butter cake warm, then you need to try it! 😀 I hope you all enjoy the recipe!

All ingredients must be at room temperature 🙂

  • 1 cup (220g) salted butter
  • 1 cup (220g) caster sugar
  • 1 tbsp unflavoured vegetable oil
  • 5 eggs
  • 1 and 3/4 cups (220g) all purpose flour or cake flour
  • 3 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 cup (112g) buttermilk
  • 1 and 1/2 tsp vanilla extract/essence
  • If using unsalted butter, add in 1/2 a teaspoon of salt to the dry ingredients
  • Regular sugar can be used as a substitute for caster sugar

Bake at 150c for 1 hour or until a toothpick comes out clean. Do not open the oven too early otherwise this will effect the texture of the cake. If you want to check your cake earlier, then only start checking it at 50 minutes 🙂

I used an 8 inch square cake tin for this recipe, but any 8 inch tin will work 🙂
