Utterly Butterly Vanilla Butter Cake - Truly Rich and Truly Buttery


Lets talk a little time about this cake..I love baking cakes than eating it..But this is one of the cake which i finished the whole batch all by myself. Believe it or not..I totally loved the texture and taste of this cake. They turned out so moist and so buttery and so rich and a rich yellow colour which was perfect. I enjoyed each mouthful of this cake..I should tell you this is one of yummy cake i have ever tasted in my life..This can be served as  a desert as well. Pour some chocolate syrup over this cake and enjoy it all by yourself..

  45. Hi Aarthi,
    This is my first cake and really wanted to let u know a big thx, cos itturned out very nice. Used the same measurements however I see that your cake looks a little bit wet and moist. Mine was soft and dry and tasted like a Tea cake. Is that how it is supposed to taste ?. What can I do if I want it to be little Moist?.
    Can I use this as a base for a birthday cake ?. Also pls let me know after adding flour can I use a hand blender or fold using spatula. I used the hand blender throughout at speed 1. My nxt try is your choclate devil cake :P..
    You are really a star !

  58. Hi aarthi,
    I'm a regular follower of your blog.Actually my LO is the reason as i searched baby foods recipes and reached here. Nowadays all my food related doubts end up here.I feel your recipes are easy to follow and like your pictorial details very much . Yesterday I tried this recipe and it came out really good. soo yummy..not get this yellowish colour as i used white butter. Thanks a lot.....

    ReplyDelete
  59. Hi aarti..love your recipes. I baked this cake and my little one loved it. Just one question though, can we substitute whole wheat instead of maida? Just that since kid is eating it I'd feel a lot more comfortable if there is no mauda.
