Butter Cake 牛油蛋糕

Just to share here the butter cake that I made for Pai tin kong prayer 拜天公 and also my mom’s favorite cake. She said this is the best butter cake that I made for her. She likes the buttery taste and fine texture. This time I modified my old recipe on my blog (old fashioned butter cake updated in 2010, egg separation method) by reducing egg and sugar ,
