Another butter cake... Was looking through my recipe collections trying to find this old fashioned butter cake recipe. Indeed it is very old. It has got a very 'Unusual' method making this cake, whereas we would normally do the creaming or the separate eggs method.
It has a good texture and not greasy crumb. I used the pudding/ jelly mould to see if the shape would come out neat and precise. Well, as you can see it's pretty fine! However, this is still not the perfect butter cake that I always wanted though. I thought the pound cake recipe has very good result which close to my liking as well as my hubby's.
