somehow i always find myself crave for an old fashion, moisty, buttery plain butter cake...the smell and aroma that linger around your house when they baked in the oven was heavenly and waiting for the cake to be done is so temptingly let alone for the cake to cooled completely before i can slice it off, well of course i always failed to do that..haha..maybe that's why all my cake were slightly undone but that's ok because i loveeeeeee undone cake, yes i'm a weirdo =P
beware friends, this recipe is definitely a keeper! by far THE BEST butter cake i've ever bake...it was so moist,so fragrance and buttery, just make sure you use high quality butter when you bake this baby (SCS Butter is the best, other butter like Anchor and Lurpak also taste devine)
i did find the taste were a little too sweet to my liking, but hey don't worry, it won't stop you from taking another slice and another slice and another.....yeah baby, its truly obsession....it was so so so deadly easy to make, even you don't have fancy mixer or hand mixer like me there is no way that you can go wrong with this recipe...the key is mix extremely well when you cream butter and sugar together and don't overmix when you added flour, you don't want to disturb or kinda 'wake-up' the gluten in the flour to prevent having a dense texture cake...
enough said, just try this..thanks Ju from The Little Teochew for sharing this recipe! (she is so gorgeous, true hot mama!)
