Butter Cake


A simple and plain cake, yet tasty and delicious. Here I made it with small quantity, so I have used the loaf pan. Only the basic ingredients are used to bake this cake. You can add on chocolate sauce  or fruit toppings as per your choice.


  • All purpose flour – 1 cup
  • Baking powder – 1/2 teaspoon
  • Sugar – 100 gram
  • Butter – 1/2 teaspoon
  • Eggs – 2
  • Milk – 2 tablespoon
  • Vanilla extract – 1/2 teaspoon
  • Salt – 1/4 teaspoon


  1. Preheat oven at 180 C for 15 minutes. Prepare a  loaf pan by lining it with butter paper. Sift the flour, baking powder & salt  2-3 times to make the cake fluffy.
  2.  In a large bowl beat the butter & sugar until pale. Add one egg at a time and beat it.  Pour in the vanilla extract and mix well.
  3. Add the flour in 2-3 parts alternating between flour and milk . Pour the batter into the prepared tin and bake for 30-35 minutes or till the skewer inserted comes out clean.
  4.  Remove the tin from the oven and place it to cool on a wire rack for 10 minutes. Invert the cake on to a plate and tap the tin so that the cake slides out easily. Allow to cool completely before cutting it.
