Good old Butter Cake!

Crumbly but yet soft, buttery, rustic, never out of favor or flavor, there's nothing better than the elegant classic Butter Cake!  For all those dairy lovers and all-out for a 'sinful' treat, then I'm your gal.  I tend to agree with Nigella who always go for the real treat like the full fat cream, full cream milk, pure butter etc.  I find that if you use the 'make-me-feel-good' skim & healthy product, the end result is not quite like the way it should.    But of course, when you bake with all the full fat sinfully version, you don't have to finish it all by yourself.  Share it and enjoy with others.  Anyway, if you gonna get fat, lets get fat together...hahahhahaha..wicked!

Anyway, after visited Petite Nyonya's blog, I salivated for butter cake.  She has many good recipes in her blog and please do visit her for this wonderfully moist recipe.  I'll not post the recipe here since you can hop into hers to get it.  I'm just gonna post the pictures so that you can see for yourself how soft and buttery this cake is.

Baking this cake wasn't in the plan and since it's at the spur of the moment, I do not have the orange juice in my fridge.  I do, however, have 2 lemons and milk.  So I substituted the 100ml orange juice and the orange rind for 50ml lemon juice and the rind. Mix the lemon juice with 50ml full cream milk to make up for 100ml.  When you combine lemon juice (which is acidic) with milk, it becomes buttermilk and I love buttermilk in any bakes.  This works fine as the end result is cottony soft and smooth texture.  It almost tasted like as though it has cream cheese in the cake!  Wow, this is my new fav recipe.  Thanks Petite Nyonya for sharing this gem of a recipe.




It's Diwali today.  Festival of Lights celebrated by all Hindus in the world.  It's a declared Public Holiday here.  I'd like to take this opportunity to wish all my Hindu friends and bloggers A Very Happy & Blessed Diwali!
