Nice and Fluffy Butter Cake

Woo Hoo.. Its been a long time since I update this little baking blog of mine.. Reason mainly due to overloaded school work.. Lots of projects lining up await me to complete them..

I did some baking here and there whenever I got released from school early.. Or sometimes crazily did my baking in the night, and wake up for school at 7am. But nevertheless, I really enjoy baking sessions, even tho its a 3 step recipe, I still enjoy the session trememdously! Cos it's the baking process that I enjoy!

I received a comment from Anonymous, requesting for a buttercake recipe, I've this recipe on hand, waiting for it's turn for me to try out.. I intend to bake this cake for B's mum, cos I remember her saying that she likes buttercakes!

I got this recipe from Aunty Yochana, and even though I haven't try it out yet, but I have faith in her recipe, always so good, and always yield good results!

So here you go!

Butter Cake

125g butter
125g cake magarine
100g sugar
1 tsp vanilla essence
90g egg yolk
1 tbsp evaporated milk
200g cake flour
5g baking powder
pinch of salt

160g egg whites
100g sugar

  1. Beat butter, magarine, sugar and salt and vanilla essence till light and creamy.
  2. Add in egg yolks one at a time and beat till creamy. Add in evaporated milk.
  3. Fold in sieved flour and baking powder.
  4. Whisk egg whites with sugar till soft peaks and gently fold into butter mixture.
  5. Pour into 20cm round tin and bake at 175C for 45 minutes or till a skewer inserted comes out clean.


Buttercake taste nicer the 2nd day and this cake can stay soft and fluffy up to 3 days. Store well in air tight containers to retain the moistures of the cake.

Oh, I expressed my interest to learn chicken rice and belachan chilli sauce from B's mum! She's a fantastic cook! Went over to B's house for lunch/dinner on several occasions, and his mum always serves up great tasting food! 2 of which I cannot resist eating more will be the chicken rice and belachan chilli!

I'm really determined to learn these from her!! So happy, really look forward to it!

Recently, I'm quite interested to learn cooking, not that I can't cook, but I wish to learn special food recipes, and impart their skills.. hehe!

I also pester my grandma to teach me her famous pumpkin rice, and yam kueh, so till then, I will master all these skills and share share it up here! Hehe!
