Another Monday work treat. One of the maintenance men asked me when I made the Apple Dapple cake if I have every made or heard of a Butter Cake...Nope have not, he said you can buy them in the local grocery's but they were out so he order some so I could taste it. :) think that was a hint that he would like me to make one. So went searching and found this one, so simple as you can see in the directions, dump it all in mixer and then bake....can't get much easier than that!
1 cup butter, cubed at room temperature
2 cups granulated sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla
3 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon baking soda
1 cup buttermilk
⅓ cup butter
¾ cup granulated sugar
2 tablespoons water
2 teaspoons vanilla
Preheat the oven to 325°F/165°C
Grease a 10" bundt pan with butter or shortening very liberally. Dust the pan with flour and set aside.
Place all the cake ingredients in the bowl of your stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. Mix on low for 30 seconds and then increase the speed to medium and mix for 3 minutes.
Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake for 65-75 minutes until a toothpick entered into the center comes out clean.
When the cake is done make the glaze. Combine all ingredients into a small saucepan over medium-low heat. Stir continuously until the butter is melted and the sugar is dissolved. Do not bring to a boil.
Poke holes all over the warm cake using a knife and pour the glaze evenly on the cake while still in the pan.
Allow the cake to cool completely in the pan and then invert the cake onto a serving plate.
I actually like to make this cake a day in advance, finding it to be more moist and flavorful when it rests overnight.
This cake is really a crowd pleaser. Bet it would be good with a fruit compote sort of sauce too.
Thanks for stopping by, have a wonderful week and Always Remember to Find the time to Do ALL the things You L♥ve.
