Butter Cake

This week has been a very busy week. There are so much paper work to be cleared and outstanding stuffs to settle. So tonight I manage to find some time to bake a simple butter cake for tomorrow breakfast. This cake has a nice buttery taste and personally I liked it alot.



Recipe Source: Florence

Ingredients:

150g golden churn butter 
1 tbsp corn oil / olive oil
110g sugar
1/3 tsp salt
1/2 tsp vanilla paste or 1 tsp vanilla essence
3 eggs

140g cake flour
40g corn starch
1/3 tsp baking powder

3 - 5 tbsp whipping cream / milk ( i used Nestle Cream)

Method:


1. Mix cake flour, corn starch and baking powder together. Sieve twice into a large mixing bowl.
2. Cream butter, oil, sugar, vanilla and salt till pale and fluffy.
3. Beat in eggs one at time, beat well after each addition.
4. Add in the flour mixture and mix at low speed till well blended.
5. Stir in the whipping cream.
6. Pour batter into a lined loaf pan and bake at 180C for 35 - 45 minutes or till cooked. 

Notes:
After 10 - 12 minutes in the oven, remove it and make a length-wise cut on the surface of the batter with a knife so that the cake will "explode" nicely with a neat line in the middle.
