                         Now to todays post....Iv fallen in love with this recipe for butter cake. Its just perfect and moist. Just the way we love it. Iv made an orange cake with chocolate chips using this recipe for butter cake. Loved it. Now Iv tried it using tutti fruity and almonds, and simply loving it...again!

                         I forgot to take a picture of the whole cake! :O .....(yeah! I guess I was in a hurry to taste it!)  I used a square cake tin. ..and it was just perfect.

                         You can even use the same recipe with your favourite combinations.(instead of the tutti fruiti and almonds)

2 1/2 cups cake flour
5 eggs
1 stick butter (113 gms), room temperature
1.5 cups sugar
1/2 tsp baking powder
3 tsps vanilla essence
1 tbsp milk powder
1/4 cups chopped almonds
1/2 cup tutti fruity

  • In a large mixing bowl, cream together the butter sugar, till light and creamy.
  • Add the eggs one at a time, beating after each addition.
  • Add the vanilla essence and milk powder.
  • In another bowl, mix the flour, baking powder, tutti fruity and almonds.
  • Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix to combine. do not over mix. 
  • Preheat the oven to 180 deg celcius .
  • grease a cake tin and line teh base with butter paper. I used a square cake tin
  • Bake for about 20- 30 mins or until a tooth pick comes out clean
