Easy Basic Butter Cake Recipe/ Resep Dasar Kue Mentega/ 简单黄油蛋糕

Butter cake, nyum nyum.. When I first heard the name, I was afraid of the amount of ‘butter’ that would be inside beautiful yellow crumbly piece of cake. When I came across the recipe, I was surprised that the amount of butter is quite reasonable for a cake recipe, not overly heavily loaded with butter, like I first thought. This cake is very basic and easy, I think everyone can make it.

First step is to beat the butter and sugar until pale and fluffy before adding egg one at a time. Next, the flour and milk are added alternately until all are incorporated and the final batter has a thick consistency. The cake usually baked in square pan, but if you want to have something fancier, bundt pan or round oval cake pan can be an option too.

The cake itself tasted like vanilla cake, but more crumbly, and soft in my opinion. The addition of vanilla bring out the aroma and buttery taste, and sometimes I would like to add a bit of lemon zest just to give a bit of lemony flavour. There are so many variations you can play with, you can add lemon or orange zest and juice, passionfruit juice and pulp, and berries when they are in season. Super easy and tasty, perfect for afternoon snack.

Butter Cake Recipe, for 20 cm square pan or 22 cm round pan or 22 cm bundt pan:

250 gr butter softened at room temperature
240 gr white granulated sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
3 eggs room temperature
370 gr all purpose flour/ plain flour
1.5 tbsp or 18 gr baking powder
180 ml milk
2 tbsp icing sugar for decorating

Cake mentega, hm.. denger dari namanya saja sudah kebayang jumlah kalori sepotong kue ini. Tapi setelah dilihat resepnya, sebenarnya jumlah mentega yang dipakai masih cukup normal kok untuk ukuran pembuatan kue. Tidak terlalu berlebihan mentega-nya seperti yang aku bayangkan.  Kue ini mudah dan cepat pembuatannya, aku rasa semua pasti bisa membuatnya.

Pertama-tama, mentega dan gula dikocok atau mixer sampai pucat dan mengembang sebelum ditambahkan telur satu persatu. Setelah telur tercampur rata, baru tepung dan susu dimasukan bergantian hingga tercampur rata. Adonannya jadinya super kental, dan siap dipanggang. Biasanya loyang yang digunakan untuk butter cake adalah loyang persegi, tapi loyang bentuk lain juga oke, asal jangan terlalu besar, nanti kue-nya pendek, atau terlalu kecil, nanti berleber.

Kalau mau buat variasi lain juga bisa, seperti ditambahkan parutan kulit lemon atau jeruk, dan perasan air jeruknya. Rasa lain yang mau kucoba nanti adalah dengan buah markisa, pasti seger seger gimana gitu deh :).
