Homemade Butter Cake

Easy, rich and delicious!

This is a recipe for a traditional butter cake. I have always called this cake "yellow cake", but as the ingredients show it is very rich and tasty. I suggest saving the yellow butter cake recipe since it is a good one, and can be used in many recipes- from birthday cakes, to family get-togethers or holidays.

It has richness from the butter, it is so delicious you can also enjoy it on it's own!

You can top it with a buttercream icing, caramel icing or a simple cake icing.


2.5 sticks of unsalted butter

2 cups granulated sugar

6 eggs

½ teaspoon salt

1 tablespoon vanilla extract

½ cup of whole milk

½ cup sour cream

1 tablespoon baking powder

1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees.

2. Using Baker’s Joy, grease and flour a 9x13 cake pan (or 9 in. cake rounds) TIP: use a pan liner.

3. Using a stand mixer or hand mixer, cream together butter and sugar at high speed until fluffy about 5 minutes. Add sour cream and mix an additional 1 minute.

4. Add eggs one at a time, beating between each addition.

5. In small bowl combine cake flour, salt and baking powder. Sift flour gently adding to mixing bowl.

6. Add milk and vanilla, mix well.

7. Pour batter into cake pan and tap to remove air bubbles.

8. If using a 9x13 pan, Bake 325 degrees 30 minutes. Continue cooking in 10 minute increments, checking for doneness. Total time is typically 50 minutes. If using 9 in cake rounds, cook time may vary between 30-35 minutes.
