Butter Cake Recipe
adapted from AllRecipes
What we need:
3 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup butter
2 cups white sugar
1 cup buttermilk
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
(1) Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
(3) Sift/dry whisk flour, salt, baking powder and baking soda. Add a third to the mixture.
(4) Add a half of the buttermilk. Repeat until all is combined.
(5) Heavily grease two 8 1/2″ by 4 1/2″ loaf pans (Note A: but any pan will do as long as just fill it up until its half full. Note B: Or you can also line the loaf pan with wax paper) divide the batter into two and bake for about 40 minutes or until done.
The original recipe calls for a butter sauce you can soak the cake into but I opted not to make it. I enjoyed the cake as it is but right now I all this talk about butter made me doubt my decision. Hmmm… it seems I need to make this cake one more time.
