Sugee Butter Cake for Mother's Day

It's Mother's Day today!
HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY to all of you wonderful mothers out there. This is an extra special day to be pampered.

My day started a day earlier.  My family treated me with a scrumptious BBQ steamboat dinner last nite and gave me a present too. A cake recipe book called Grandbaby Cakes by  food blogger Jocelyne Delk Adams. A great book with good recipes.  I am happy.  Thank you my lovelies! 😙

So today, I made myself this moist and soft Sugee Butter Cake with Rum. Mmmm...yummy! It's a big cake. So I decided to bake it into two small trays and gave one to my good neighbour.  So, not only am I happy but my neighbour is too.

Well, let's get on with the recipe shall we?  Right! All you need is:

300g butter
260g caster sugar
1 tsp salt
5 eggs
190g plain flour
1 tbsp baking powder
300g semolina
300ml fresh milk
1 tsp vanilla (I used 2-3 tbsp of rum)

1. Soak semolina with milk for 6 hours.
2. Grease and line 9 inch baking pan. Pre heat oven to 180 defree celcius.
3. Beat butter and sugar and salt until light and fluffy.  Add eggs one at a time, beat well after each addition
4. Stir in semolina and vanilla or rum. Fold in sifted flour and blend to mix.
5. Spread into baking tin and bake for 40-45 mins or until cake is done.

Enjoy with a cup of hot tea! 😆
