Better Butter Cake

‘Tis the season… baking season! What better way to kick it off than making the ultimate comfort cake? This butter cake recipe will have your mouth watering for a slice of rich, buttery goodness.

You can also serve with fresh fruit… because, balance.







We were inspired by this Blue-Ribbon Butter Cake and are happy to report that substituting ghee works well!

1 cup Kelapo ghee, soft
2 cups sugar
4 large eggs, room temperature
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup buttermilk

In a large bowl, mix the ghee and sugar. Beat in eggs, one at a time. Then beat in the vanilla.

Next, combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt; add to creamed mixture alternately with buttermilk, beating well after each addition.

Pour into a greased and floured 10-in. tube pan. Bake at 350° until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean, 55-70 minutes. Cool 10 minutes. Run a knife around edges and center tube of pan. Invert cake onto a wire rack over waxed paper.

Butter Glaze
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup Kelapo ghee
1/4 cup water
1-1/2 tsp almond extract
1-1/2 tsp vanilla extract

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.

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.
