Butter Cake
  1. Preheat oven to 180°C/160°C (fan-forced) and grease a 24cm x 13cm x 6.5cm (base measurements) loaf pan. Line base and sides with baking paper, extending paper 2cm above pan edges
  2. Beat butter, sugar and vanilla in a large bowl with an electric mixer on medium speed until pale and creamy
  3. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Mixture may look curdled at this stage
  4. Add sifted flour and milk in two batches, folding until combined. Spoon into prepared pan and smooth top
  5. Cook 50-60 minutes or until lightly golden and a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean. Remove from oven and stand in pan for 10 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely
Tips & Hints:
  • All ingredients (including milk and eggs) must be at room temperature when making this cake
  • Butter cake will keep well wrapped in a sealed container for 3 days. Microwave slices for 10 seconds or until warm before serving
