Butter Cake (Old Fashioned)~Yummilicious !!!!

Butter cake,as the name is the texture of the cake;utterly buttery & delicious.Perfect to celebrate any occasion and once in a while as the cake is rich in calories.This cake was posted by many of my blogger friends and one of my family favorite cakes as well.I always had the store brought version of this cake and so I bookmarked this recipe from here and it came out very well as you can seen in pics.And am happy too as I could strike out atleast one from my to do list.She had used half the quantity and baked in a 8*4 loaf pan;however I used a 8*8 square pan to bake the cake.Hope you will all enjoy baking this cake at home and each one of you would love each & every bite of it !!
Also,The flavorful roundup of the EP Series event -Ginger or Peppercorns is posted by Prabha @ Prabha's Cooking at her space,please do visit her space and collect your awards.Thanx Prabha,for the fabulous roundup.:-)

* I used the regular granulated sugar and powdered it.The powdered amount should be 1 1/2 cups.Its a moderately sweet cake.

When i get a microwave or oven, the first thing I'm gonna bake is your simple & traditional cake.
The stacked up picture of cakes just makes me want to pounce over the cake & empty it.
Yep cake with coffee/tea is a great combination. In Kannada they call it "Sakath combination maghaa" ;-). I don't speak Kannada, but the sounding of those 3 words are easy on ears.

Lovely Recipe!

Tried your recipe few days back. So fluffy, tasty. Thanks for posting the recipe. I got so many compliments in the first trial itself. But the recipe needs 2 butter sticks, may be next time will reduce that.
