Basic Butter Cake

30 Mar

I’ve been trying to make an ideal “butter cake”.

Butter cake is simple yet is very difficult to make it very good as I mentioned in the earlier post. They tend to be a bit dried, and you feel like your mouth gets dried while eating them.

I made this butter cake by using different method from the regular one. Which is, to add in melted butter at the later stage instead of using softened butter in the initial stage.

This way is something similar to making genoise (sponge cake), so the texture becomes more moist, soft and fluffy. So if you don’t want to feel the heaviness or buttery cake, this might be a good way to make it more light. It seems to be good for cupcakes too.

As usual I applied rum on top of the cake right after I took it out from the oven. It gave the cake a very nice rum taste and also helped the cake become more moist…

      Hi Irina, this cake I made a while ago at home. So in my shop, I won’t be using those non-halal ingredients. Don’t worry!
