Easy vanilla butter cake
This classic butter cake recipe is great for parties and special occasions. Preparation Time
20 minutes
Cooking Time
150 minutes
Ingredients (serves 15)
* Melted butter, to grease
* 450g (3 cups) self-raising flour
* 150g (1 cup) plain flour
* 440g (2 cups) caster sugar
* 300g butter, cubed, at room temperature
* 310ml (1 1/4 cups) milk
* 6 eggs, at room temperature
* 3 tsp vanilla essence

Method
1. Preheat oven to 140°C. Position a rack on the second lowest shelf of the oven. Brush a round 25cm (base measurement) cake pan with the melted butter to lightly grease. Line base and sides with non-stick baking paper. 2. Place the self-raising flour, plain flour, sugar, butter, milk, eggs and vanilla essence in a large mixing bowl. Use an electric beater to beat on low speed for 30 seconds or until just combined. Increase the speed to high and beat for 1-2 minutes or until the mixture is thick and all the butter is incorporated. Spoon the mixture into the prepared pan and smooth the surface with the back of a spoon. 3. Bake in preheated oven for 2 1/2 hours or until a skewer inserted into the centre of the cake comes out clean. Remove from oven and set aside for 10 minutes. Turn onto a wire rack for 2 hours or until completely cool. Notes

* Have the butter at room temperature, soft enough to beat, but not melted. The undecorated cakes will keep in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
