Butter Cake Recipe Ingredients

To bring this delightful treat to life, you’ll need:

  • 3 cups all-purpose flour – the foundation of your cake, providing structure and softness.
  • 2 cups sugar – sweetening the cake to perfection.
  • 1 cup butter – for that rich, buttery flavor.
  • 1 cup milk – adding moisture and tenderness.
  • 5 eggs – essential for binding the ingredients together.
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder – to ensure your cake rises beautifully.
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract – for a hint of warm, aromatic flavor.
  • 1 teaspoon whiskey – adding a unique twist to the classic taste.
  • ½ teaspoon salt – to balance and enhance the flavors.

Directions

Creating this masterpiece involves a few simple steps:

  1. Creaming the butter and sugar: Start by thoroughly combining the butter and sugar until the mixture is light and fluffy.
  2. Adding the egg yolks, whiskey, and vanilla: Blend these in next, ensuring a homogenous and smooth batter.
  3. Sifting in the dry ingredients: Alternate adding the sifted flour, baking powder, and salt with the milk to the batter, blending gently.
  4. Folding in beaten egg whites: Beat the egg whites until stiff peaks form and then gently fold them into the batter for an airy texture.
  5. Baking to golden perfection: Grease and flour a cake pan, pour in the batter, and bake in a preheated oven at 180°C (350°F) for 1 hour.
