Old fashioned butter cake

Old fashioned butter cake


I have been missing action for few days, as my sister-in-law and her kids were visit us last week and also we went back to my hometown over the weekend. After few days of not updating my blog, I just feel lazy to get start to update a new post, hehehe..Anyway, I'm back in action now, but i can only post you this butter cake that i baked last 2 weeks ago as I did not cook or bake any new recipes over these few days.



Old fashioned butter cake


Recently, I have seen so many bloggers baked this old fashioned butter cake and this is also one of my favourite butter cake. This time, I tried with the separation of egg yolk and egg white method.

Your butter cake is very nicely baked! Look at the smoothness crumbs and evenly baked result. That's no doubt a 100% successful butter cake. I've just bookmarked this and would love to try it out. Thanks for sharing!

I love your butter cake. Their texture is so perfect. I thought the double action baking powder will be too strong for this cake and it didn't.

I tried this recipe. The cake tasted nice but was dry and dense. Any idea why?

joanne said...

hi,i have try this recipe.is nice,but i did not use double action baking powder.(use normal bakingpowder).thank you for sharing.

lalayuen said...

hi your cake looks very very nice, may i ask what is double action baking powder?? can i use normal baking powder instead? thanks very much

Sonia (Nasi Lemak Lover) said...

lalayuen, double action baking powder means the baking powder reacts twice; contain one acid that dissolves when it comes in contact with water and another acid that does not dissolve until it reaches a higher temperature in a hot oven. This type of double action ensures that the finished product is light and fluffy. Yes, you can replace with normal baking powder and maybe for 1 and 1/2 tsp .

bbgeh said...

Hi there,
I'm just wondering if there is a particular kind of sugar you use for your recipes? Or is it just normal sugar?

Sonia ~ Nasi Lemak Lover said...

Ainsley, I just use normal caster sugar

Hi, I would like to check with you if I can use top flour to replace cake flour?

Can I also use brown sugar instead of caster sugar?

Look forward to hearing from you.
