Butter Cake is the easiest, simplest and who doesn’t like butter cake am I right? It is a cake that you can have in the evening and why not for berbuka to satisfy your sweet tooth craving at the end of puasa day. It can be a lot simpler when you have the correct equipment. Thus, in this recipe I will be using the love of my life Russell Taylors Stand Mixer. Also check out this article on how easy I made meringue using Russell Taylors Stand Mixer.

Buttery, delicious butter cake made using Russell Taylors Stand Mixer














In this recipe, I will be providing you the picture by picture guide in making the perfect butter cake for you to satisfy yourself or even your family with this great moist and buttery cake, and it cannot be way simpler and easy when you have Russell Taylors Stand Mixer.

First, get your stand mixer all ready. I’m using Russell Taylors Stand Mixer SM-1500 with 1500watts motor power that comes with 3 attachments(dough hook, wire whip and flat beater) and in this recipe, I will be using flat beater attachment.

Russell Taylors Stand Mixer SM-1500 comes with splash guard, flat beater, dough hook and wire whip
Preheat your oven to 190 degree celsius beforehand and I have prepared my ingredients accordingly so that I can easily watch Russell Taylors Stand Mixer in action hahaha! Before that, I have to let my butter soften sitting on the counter for 10-15 minutes and sift my 200g of flour and 1 teaspoon of baking powder together so it is well mixed and sifting your flour is also key in achieving that fluffy spongy cake!


Also, don’t forget to butter your cake pan so that the cake won’t stick to the pan. The trick to this is, when it comes to baking a cake you will definitely use the whole brick of butter and I use the leftover that is in the packaging to butter my pan. Butter is expensive and I’m not gonna waste that! I have also put parchment paper for extra security so that the cake won’t stick.


Beat the 225g salted butter with 200g of white sugar in the Russell Taylors Stand Mixer, beat it until the mixture is yellowy pale. With Russell Taylors’ powerful motor, and flat beater I must say it gets the job done marvelously and it has small, cute suction cups underneath to ensure the machine doesn’t move. Real slick right?

This is what yellowy pale looks like
After the mixture of butter and sugar have turned yellowy pale. Add one by one of 4 large eggs while the mixer is still running on low speed until fully incorporated, then continue to add another one and so on. A little trick is to crack one egg in a separate bowl one at a time so you can ensure there’s no egg shell before adding into the mixture.


Please ensure the mixture is fully incorporated, by stopping the mixer for a while and scraping down all the sides will definitely help in even mixing. After that, add in 1 teaspoon of vanilla essence and 4 tablespoons of full cream milk to enhance the sweet aroma and ensure your cake is moist!


Next, gradually add in the 200g of flour that you have sifted with 1 teaspoon of baking powder, and Russell Taylors Stand Mixer that comes with 6 power settings, putting it on low speed(Believe me it is slow) your kitchen is not going to be a mess when gradually adding the flour. After a few minutes of mixing, if you still think it needs to be mixed even more just use the pulse setting giving you even more control in mixing your cake mixture. Amazing!


After all of that, pour the batter to the greased 8 inches cake pan and use spatula to distribute it evenly. Russell Taylors stainless steel bowl is a 7.5l bowl and small batches kuih raya what? It's big enough to make kuih raya in one sitting, I love it! And making this cake even in small batch like this, it works wonders!


Bake in 190 degree celsius until golden brown for 30 minutes depending on the size of your cake pan and oven. Mine is perfectly 30 minutes. You can check if your cake is done by sticking a wooden chopstick or toothpick in the middle of the cake, if it comes out clean it's done. If it's not, let it bake for another 5-10 minutes.


After your cake is fully baked, let it cool on the wire rack for 5 minutes. Then cut it into pieces and serve it warm with fresh fruits on the side or just simple plain hot brewed tea. In this sweet tooth craving during Ramadhan, serve it next to kurma! This butter cake recipe gives you moist, buttery and deliciously sweet to satisfy your craving. Simple and easy, easiest when you have Russell Taylors Stand Mixer!


I must say, Russell Taylors Stand Mixer is definitely the best companion when it comes to baking. Powerful, large and very easy to use.
