Golden Butter Cake

Golden Butter Cake


This recipe is very famous and is a classic recipe in the Cake Bible.Whether you are a beginner in cakes As a baker, I think this recipe is worth trying.


  • room temperature milk (45g)
  • room temperature eggs 3
  • Vanilla extract 1+1/2 tsp (5 drops)
  • Low-gluten flour 1+1/2 cups (150g)
  • sugar 3/4 cup (150g, reduce to 100-120g at most)
  • baking powder 3/4 tsp
  • Salt 1/4 tsp (1g)
  • Room temperature softened butter (170g)


  1. Prepare all the ingredients, put the butter in a large basin, and beat it to prevent it from splattering. Put the baking powder and cake flour in a bowl, and drop the vanilla extract into the eggs. Preheat the oven to 175 degrees.
  2. Because the milk is too cold after being poured out of the refrigerator, heat it in the microwave for 20 seconds, pour it into the egg liquid and beat it together.
  3. Butter must be softened at room temperature and not yet melted. The melting point of butter is 35 degrees. You can cut it into small pieces and soften it with warm water. You can also heat it in the microwave at low temperature for 10 seconds and take it out. However, it is difficult to control the microwave. If there is no low temperature setting, it is easy to heat the butter, and the heated butter cannot be used to make butter cakes.
  4. Add sugar and salt and continue beating.
  5. Add the egg milk liquid in 5-8 batches, whisking to absorb thoroughly after each addition before adding the second time. If the liquid is too cold or too moist, it can easily cause water and oil to separate. The egg liquid must be warm and can be kept warm by sitting in warm water.
  6. Sift in cake flour and baking powder.Stir and mix evenly.
  7. Place baking paper on the mold. I am used to using baking paper. It makes it easy to unmold the cake and prevents cake crumbs from falling off.
  8. Pour the batter into the mold and smooth it out. 165 degrees, bake the middle layer for 35 minutes, cover the surface with tin foil to prevent it from getting too dark, and continue baking for another 25 minutes.You can insert a toothpick. , if the batter does not come out, it is cooked and does not need to be baked to avoid the cake being too dry.
