Vanilla Butter Cake


Ciao Ciao! This is a simple cake that causes for no fuss and annoyance. Basically the best thing you can have on a Friday night by yourself. Lathered in custard. Watching The Titanic. Yep dats what I did. (Cool girl)

Mid-way through writing this post I made breakfast because I was famished and I cooked 90 second oats. A few days ago our microwave busted into nothing so Dad went and bought this super strength microwave that heats you food in 1 second. Literally, I could cook popcorn in there for 1 second and it would work. Anyway, I just put my oats in and during the 80 second mark I peek through the micro only to find out that my entire meal had bubbled over into a hot mess.
So I am now eating HALF a bowl of oats and I am too angry to make anymore.
I've finished and I'm craving more. (Oats, not cake! Although I could do with some cake omnomnom). I finally understand what the word HANGRY means. (Hungry and angry at the same time). Hksjdhflkjsdhflkjsdf
Note: this cake is supposed to be a butter cake not a sponge cake so it should be moist. Just a warning so no one hates me after they've cooked the cake waiting for an airy sponge.
ALSO. I GOT INTO MONASH UNIVERSITY IN MELBOURNE. SO I AM MOVING TO MELBOURNE IN 2 WEEKS AND I DON'T KNOW WHAT I'M DOING BUT YOLO. AND I WILL HAVE TO COOK IN MY 1x1 KITCHEN BUT I WILL BE COOKING AND IM SO EXCITED YEAH OKAY BYE XOXO

Vanilla Butter Cake
                      Recipe from The Australian Women's Weekly

 - 125g butter, chopped
- 3/4 cup (180ml) milk
- 3 eggs
- 2 tsp of Vanilla extract
- 1 cup of caster sugar
- 1 1/2 cups (225g) of self raising flour

Preheat the oven to 180 degrees celcius/160 degrees fan forced. Grease deep 19cm square cake tin and line base with bakin paper. (As you can see I don't have one of these so I fished out a lovely flower one which I thought suited the dimensions required).
Combine butter and milk in a saucepan and stir until smooth.
Beat eggs and extract in a small bowl with electric mixer until thick and creamy; gradually add sugar and beat until dissolved between each addition.
Transfer mixture to large bowl, stir in sifted flour and butter mixture in two batches.
Pour into cake pan and bake for about 45 minutes. Stand cake in pan for 5 minutes; turn top-side down onto wire rack and let cook. If desired, dust cake with icing sugar.
