Butter cake with whipped cream

This butter cake holds so much sweet memories from  my childhood. The batter tasted just like how I remember my Mom making it when I was a little girl. She would let me and my sister lick the batter and we both would wait impatiently for it to be baked. Here is the recipe.


  • 250 grams all purpose flour
  • 250 grams sugar
  • 250 grams butter
  • 250 grams eggs (around 4-5 eggs)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla essence
  • 1.5 teaspoon baking powder
  • Whipped cream
  • Icing Sugar
  • Dark chocolate



  • Mix the butter and sugar in an electric mixer at medium speed until well combined
  • Slowly add the eggs, one by one and mix well.
  • Add the vanilla essence to the mix
  • Stop the electric mixer and gently fold in the flour (sifted together with the baking powder) using a wooden spoon or spatula
  • Bake the cake in a preheated oven at 150 degrees for 1 hour or until a toothpick inserted at the center comes out clean.

For the whipped cream, my personal favourite is Mactop Traditional, but please use whatever is best for you. While whipping, add a small amount of icing sugar and chill the whipped cream in the fridge for about 15 minutes. Spread on a completely cooled cake and grate the dark chocolate over the cake.

This cake goes so well with a good cup of coffee. Sigh
