Speaking of butter, did you know that the first recorded butter transaction dates back to ancient times in what is now present-day Turkey? And butter is so fantastic that it's considered a universal love language – just think of buttered popcorn on a movie night, or buttery croissants on a lazy Sunday morning. Butter cakes are the sweet embodiment of this universal truth, spreading joy one bite at a time.

Now that you're armed with a bit of butter cake history and some rich facts, it's time to whip up your own butter cake masterpiece. Buckle up – it's about to get deliciously chaotic in your kitchen!



  • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 ½ cups granulated sugar
  • 4 large eggs, room temperature
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup whole milk, room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

What's not to love about butter cakes? They're the dessert equivalent of a warm hug, a slice of nostalgia that transports you to Grandma's kitchen with every forkful. The buttery, melt-in-your-mouth texture is so satisfying that it's like a gentle butter massage for your taste buds. And don't even get us started on that oh-so-divine aroma wafting from the oven!




Preheat the Oven

Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease and flour a 9-inch round cake pan or line it with parchment paper.


Creaming Butter and Sugar

In a large mixing bowl, cream together the softened butter and granulated sugar until the mixture is light and fluffy. You can use a handheld mixer or a stand mixer for this step.


Top-Secret Tips for Baking Bliss

When it comes to butter, we're talking room temperature, not straight-from-the-fridge cold or sunbathing-on-the-counter warm. Let it sit out for a bit before you dive into the baking escapade. Softened butter is your golden ticket to a cake that's as smooth as a buttery whisper.


Adding Eggs

Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Make sure each egg is fully incorporated before adding the next one.


Dry Ingredients

In a separate bowl, whisk together the all-purpose flour, baking powder, and salt.


Incorporating Dry Ingredients

Gradually add the dry ingredient mixture to the butter-sugar-egg mixture, alternating with the milk. Start and end with the dry ingredients, mixing on low speed until just combined. Be careful not to overmix.



Adding Vanilla

Stir in the vanilla extract, ensuring it's evenly distributed in the batter.



Pour the batter into the prepared cake pan and spread it evenly.


Baking Time

Bake in the preheated oven for about 20-25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean.



Once the cake is baked, remove it from the oven and allow it to cool in the pan for about 10 minutes. Then, transfer the cake to a wire rack to cool completely.



Once the cake is completely cooled, you can slice and serve it. It's a delicious dessert that goes well with a cup of tea or coffee.

So, our butter-loving comrades, it's time to embrace the buttery bliss that is a butter cake. Channel your inner butter whisperer, whip up some giggles, and embark on a journey that will leave your taste buds in a state of buttery euphoria. Remember, life is short – but a slice of butter cake? That's a bite-sized eternity of happiness, and we're here for it.
