Butter Cake

This is my first attempt in baking butter cake.

I got the recipe from Joe Deli This recipe is so easy to make , just mix everything well. And the batter is ready to bake.

Ingredients

160g butter
150g caster sugar
3 medium eggs
140g all-purpose flour, sifted
30g cornflour, sifted with all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder, sifted with all-purpose flour
1 tsp vanilla essence
80ml milk

Method
  1. Preheat oven at 170-180 deg C. Prepare a greased loaf cake tin.
  2. Combine all ingredients in a mixing bowl. Beat with mixer at slow speed until combined.
  3. Increase to medium speed and beat until mixture turns pale and creamy. Pour into prepared tin.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven for 40-45 minutes until golden brown and springy to touch.
  5. Leave to cool in the tin for about 5 minutes before turning the cake onto a wire rack to finish cooling.

I used electric mixer and everything turns much easier. The only this is i find that the cake is too sweet and will reduce it next time. Other than that the middle part wasn't cooked! Even though i follow the instruction baking at 170-180 deg C for 40-45 minutes.

Perhaps i should try at 170 deg C for 50 minutes (longer) and see how it turns out.
