Easy Butter Cake Recipe

Make the best butter cake recipe ever with this easy-to-follow recipe. It’s moist and delicious, with a nice texture that goes perfectly with ice cream and hot tea.

The cake itself is simple to make and requires a little patience. Timing is one important step in making this cake, as in many other recipes. I’ve made this cake many times, but I still get excited whenever it comes out of the oven. I love baking it in a bundt pan; the best part is that frosting or a glaze is not required.

One secret to remember is that the quality of all ingredients is important in baking, but butter cake recipes require the highest quality for optimum flavor and texture. Use good flour like King Arthur All-Purpose Flour, organic sugar, and good butter to increase your chances of success with this recipe.

Another great tip is using spices. You have to season your baked goods. Vanilla extract, ground cinnamon, ground nutmeg, and ground ginger are the most common ingredients used to spice up cakes.

The ingredients needed for the Butter Cake Recipe

  • All-purpose flour: I use King Arthur Flour for all my baked goods. I have not had any problems with it yet. It is more expensive than some other brands, but it is worth the price.
  • Salt: use fine salt if you can.
  • Ground cinnamon: to spice up the cake.
  • Ground nutmeg: to spice up the cake.
  • Baking powder: an essential ingredient when making cakes.
  • Baking soda: an essential ingredient when making cakes.
  • Unsalted butter: use a good brand if you can. It makes such a huge difference.
  • Granulated sugar: I use organic sugar and reduce the amount by 1 – 2 tablespoons.
  • Large eggs: make sure they are at room temperature before adding them to the mixture.
  • Whole milk: this must always be at room temperature. You can use 2% milk but not 1% – not a good combination for the batter. The cake needs the extra fat to be fluffy.
  • Vanilla extract: store-bought or homemade is fine.

Directions for the Butter Cake Recipe

  • Preheat the oven to 325°F. Prepare your bundt pan. Use butter and flour to coat a 10 – 12 cup bundt pan. You can also use a baking spray.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda, ground cinnamon, and ground nutmeg/
  • In a large mixing bowl or a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, beat the butter and sugar at medium speed until fluffy, about 3 to 4 minutes, stopping to scrape the sides of the bowl occasionally.
  • With the mixer on low, add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.
  • With the mixer on low, gradually add the flour mixture to the butter mixture alternately with the milk, beginning and ending with the flour mixture, beating just until combined after each addition.
  • With the spatula, scrape the bottom of the mixing bowl to make sure that the flour does not stick to the bottom. Mix the batter for a few seconds to fully incorporate all the ingredients. Spoon the batter into the prepared bundt pan.
  • Bake for 1 hour and 15 mins or until a wooden pick inserted near the center comes out clean.
