Blue-Ribbon Butter Cake Recipe

This classic cake is great for any occasion. When will you serve yours?


I found this recipe in an old cookbook I bought at a garage sale and couldn’t wait to try it. I knew it had been someone’s favorite because of the well-worn page. —Joan Gertz, Palmetto, Florida

Ingredients
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 4 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • BUTTER SAUCE:
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter, cubed
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons almond extract
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract



Directions
  1. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in vanilla. Combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt; add to creamed mixture alternately with buttermilk, beating well after each addition.
  2. Pour into a greased and floured 10-in. tube pan. Bake at 350° for 65-70 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes. Run a knife around edges and center tube of pan. Invert cake onto a wire rack over waxed paper.
  3. For sauce, combine the sugar, butter and water in a small saucepan. Cook over medium heat just until butter is melted and sugar is dissolved. Remove from the heat; stir in extracts.
  4. Poke holes in the top of the warm cake; spoon 1/4 cup sauce over cake. Let stand until sauce is absorbed. Repeat twice. Poke holes into sides of cake; brush remaining sauce over sides. Cool completely. Yield: 16 servings.

Test Kitchen Tips
  • Make cake slicing simple (with no squishing or tearing) by using a long serrated knife. Gentle pressure and a back-and-forth motion work best.
  • Use a pastry brush to sweep away excess flour after flipping the cake out of the pan.
