Indulge in the delightful simplicity of a soft butter cake with this easy-to-follow recipe. Perfect for any occasion, this moist and tender cake will melt in your mouth with every bite.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 4 large eggs, at room temperature
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup milk

Instructions:

  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease and flour a 9-inch round cake pan or line it with parchment paper for easy removal.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, cream together the softened butter and granulated sugar until light and fluffy using an electric mixer or a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment.
  3. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in the vanilla extract.
  4. In a separate bowl, sift together the all-purpose flour, baking powder, and salt.
  5. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the creamed mixture, alternating with the milk, beginning and ending with the dry ingredients. Mix until just combined, being careful not to overmix.
  6. Pour the batter into the prepared cake pan and smooth the top with a spatula.
  7. Bake in the preheated oven for 30 to 35 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean.
  8. Allow the cake to cool in the pan for 10 minutes before transferring it to a wire rack to cool completely.
  9. Once cooled, slice and serve your soft butter cake on its own or with a dollop of whipped cream or a dusting of powdered sugar.

Enjoy the simple pleasure of this moist and buttery cake with your loved ones!
