Cuba tengok belang tu.. memula cam rajin, pastu cam malas pulak… tu pasal la jadi camtu.. tapi rasanya maaaaasih sedap.. i used a very simple and straight forward buttercake recipe. I got this recipe so many years back, even before i got married.. but i’ve already improvised it (thanks to RN) to make it tastier and ‘richer’… For my family, this cake is a must during Hari Raya!
It’s pretty simple to make, the whole process, starting from taking out the ingredients to taking out the cake from the oven, would take about 1 1/2 hours only. If you care to try, here’s the recipe:-
- 300g butter
- 300g castor sugar
- 320g flour
- 1/2 to 3/4 cup fresh milk (up to you)
- 5 eggs
- 1 tsp vanilla essence
- 1 tsp baking powder
- Flavor + coloring (chocolate/cocoa/strawberry) – optional
Beat sugar + butter till fluffy. Add in eggs, one at a time. Add in vanilla essence. Lastly fold in flour + baking powder (sifted together) in alternate with fresh milk (be sure to start with flour and end with flour). Divide the batter into 2, one plain and the other mix with flavour of your choice (or you may want to bake it plain). Scoop 1 spoonful of plain into the cake tin (greased and lined), then the flavoured, alternatively till you finish the whole thing (for better result, reduce the amount of mixture bit by bit as you go along). Bake at 150c for about an hour.
And the result.. insanely delicious!!
