Soft Butter Cake Recipe πŸŽ‚



1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened

1 1/2 cups granulated sugar

4 large eggs, at room temperature

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

3 cups all-purpose flour

1 tablespoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 cup whole milk, at room temperature 


Preheat the Oven and Prepare the Pan:

Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease and flour a 9x13 inch baking pan or two 9-inch round cake pans.

Cream Butter and Sugar:

In a large bowl, using an electric mixer, cream together the softened butter and granulated sugar until light and fluffy, about 3-4 minutes.

Add Eggs and Vanilla:

Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in the vanilla extract.

Combine Dry Ingredients:

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

Alternate Dry Ingredients and Milk:

Gradually add the dry ingredients to the butter mixture alternately with the milk, starting and ending with the flour mixture. Mix just until combined.


Pour the batter into the prepared pan(s). Smooth the top with a spatula.

Bake for 30-35 minutes for round pans, or 35-40 minutes for a 9x13 inch pan, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean.


Allow the cake to cool in the pan for 10 minutes, then turn out onto a wire rack to cool completely.


Once cooled, the cake can be frosted with your favorite icing, dusted with powdered sugar, or enjoyed plain.
