Cake can be a rather fussy cooking venture. By the time you pull out and mix together all of the ingredients for the cake, you’ve got to gather the supplies for the frosting. It can be messy, time consuming, and down-right difficult to make a moist, homemade cake from scratch.
Enter this beautiful little butter cake. Dense and full of buttery flavor, there’s no way you can botch up this recipe. It’s so simple, requires just a handful of ingredients, and it bakes up perfectly everytime. Enjoy.
- 2 sticks butter
- 4 eggs
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 cup flour
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar. Add the eggs and beat until very fluffy. Stir in flour and vanilla. Pour batter into a well-greased & floured 9-inch cake pan. Bake in an oven preheated to 350 degrees for 22-25 minutes, or just until the cake springs back to the touch. Remove from oven, invert onto a cake pan, use a drinking straw to poke several holes in the cake. Drizzle warm frosting on top of warm cake. Serve warm.
