Butter Cake with White Chocolate Frosting

Aah yes, butter cake. The one cake that sounds like it will clog an artery just by the name… Many wonder what the difference between a butter cake and a yellow cake is, but there really isn’t much of a difference except yellow cakes tend to be a bit fluffier and lighter, where butter cakes are slightly more dense and dare I say, buttery. If we’re going to go with the butter cake, may as well go all out with a nice sweet frosting. White chocolate it is!

Butter Cake Ingredients (9″ x 13″ baking dish):
• 1 cup butter, softened
• 2 cups sugar
• 2 eggs
• 1 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
• 3 cups flour
• 2 1/2 tsp. baking powder
• 1 tsp. salt
• 1 1/2 cups milk

Preheat the oven to 350F.
Cream together the butter and sugar in a large bowl.
Add the eggs and vanilla extract, blend until fluffy.
In a separate bowl, combine the flour, baking powder and salt.
Alternate between the flour mixture and milk into the creamed mixture, until all ingredients are just combined.
Toss the cake in the oven for about 30-35 minutes, or when a tooth pick comes out clean from the center of the cake.

Now we’re ready to get started on the frosting!

White Chocolate Frosting Ingredients:
• 1 cup butter, softened
• 2 cups white chocolate, melted
• 3 cups powdered sugar
• 1 tsp. vanilla extract
• 3-4 tbs. milk

Beat the butter until fluffy and slowly add the melted white chocolate until creamy.
Add the vanilla extract.
Alternate between the powdered sugar(sifted) and milk, beating until your desired consistency is achieved.
Then frost that cake up and ENJOY! 😀
