Best Ever Buttercake

Year end is approaching very soon then I realized I had only one entry this year which was in January…. indeed it was such a long break. There are many recipes to share but I still have not sorted many things in my new place yet and most of all still unable to get Telekom Malaysia to fix my phone line… what a pity… almost three years my application still not processed despite many follow ups. Can you believe that I'm living in the middle of Taiping town but unable to get a telephone line with so many excuses that hard to understand…. 

Anyway, while I have this little opportunity let’s focus on the food instead of the miserable phone line story…

It was my mother’s 78th birthday recently and her choice is always homemade butter cake. This recipe is a keeper and have been served few times in the family…. simple and buttery taste with soft and moist texture.

The difficult part (or rather easy part?) she dislikes creamy or buttery icing! The difficult part is how to make it special for the occasion or at least presentable if it is simply a bare cake? Of course it will be easy if it is simply bare…. So, this time I came up with caramel icing which matched very well with butter cake. It was a delicious topping and lickable…. LOL. I didn’t have the time to put up a fancy decoration but store-bought flowers were enough to make my mother smiled on the day…. 

Simple birthday morning in a beautiful green scenary of Taiping Lake garden:
 Here is the recipe:

(Translated into English by HomeKreation)
Yields: 8” round or 8” square
250g Pure Butter
250g Self-raising Flour
180g Caster Sugar
4 Eggs
½ cup Fresh Milk

1.       Beat butter & sugar until pale & fluffy.
2.       Add egg, one by one, until combined in each addition.
3.       Mix in flour alternately with milk.

The caramel icing is quite a long step... I'll share that in next post if anyone interested...

Assalamualaikum kawan2 yg masih sudi singgah di blog Along yang lip-lap ni…. dok rindu nak update tapi ini lah…

Nak update kek butter yang sedap, harum gebu ni… Orang tua2 dan budak2 kat rumah ni gemar makan kek butter… Bila birthday beli kek kat kedai selalu nya kek span atau kek coklat, lepas tu selalu jer terbuang tak berapa nak makan… tambahan aising yg berlemak dan manis lagi lah susah budak2 ni nak makan. So, birthday mak baru2 ni kena lah buat homemade. lagi pun lebih intim bila anak sendiri yg buatkan… heheee (sendiri yg perasan). Aising nya pula Along try buat caramel aising… rasa nya seperti sekaya…. sedap banget memang padan dgn kek butter… abis licin kek & aising… Alhamdulillah walaupun rupa hiasan tak lah molek sangat.
