Butter Cake

This is a very easy cake to make and I got this recipe from Donna Hay cookbook. You can have the cake plain or frost it with different flavors icing. You can even add some other spices or extracts to it or even jazz it up with some fresh fruits to the batter to change it to another type of butter cake.

Ingredients :
(adapted from Donna Hay Classic II)

1 stick (4 oz) of butter
1 cup of sugar
3 eggs
1 1/2 cup of flour
1 tsp of baking powder
1/2 tsp of baking soda
1 tsp of vanilla
1/2 cup of milk

1) Pre-heat oven to 300 F. Grease baking pan.
2) Put all ingredients in a mixing bowl and beat on low speed until combined.
3) Increase to high speed and beat until smooth.
4) Pour into greased pan and bake for an hour or until cooked when tested with skewer.
5) Allow to cool briefly and then turn out onto a wire rack.

BBO, I used mini loft pan that comes like muffin pan. Size around 3 1/2" x 1 1/2".

Beachlover, I bought Donny Hay books from and it is much cheaper than the book store. We too have problem finishing what ever I baked so I will give it to my neighbors and sometime Carlos will take it to work to share it with others.
