Soft Butter Cake Recipe πŸŽ‚

 



Ingredients:


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 


Instructions:


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.

Bake:

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.

Cool:

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

Serve:

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