The Basics Of Mixing A Butter Cake:

Using a stand mixer makes the mixing of butter cakes, or any other cake, very easy and it is worth trying these old fashion recipes the easy way.

  • All the dry ingredients have to be sifted twice before measuring it
  • Always start your butter cake by softening the butter a little
  • Start beating the butter and sugar until creamy
  • Add the eggs one at a time while beating very well in between
  • Then you proceed by folding in the other dry ingredients alternatively with the milk
  • Do not over mix the cake at this stage; only mix enough to incorporate all the ingredients well.

Prepare you cake tins by lining them with paper and greasing them very well. You can use non-stick paper, but still spray the pan with cooking spray.

Pre-heat the oven to the required heat before you start mixing your cake.

Orange Butter Cream

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 Cup of butter
  • 3 Cups of icing sugar
  • Pinch of salt
  • Enough orange juice to get the right consistency

Method:

  1. Cream the butter and icing sugar with your stand mixer
  2. Add the orange juice while mixing until you have the right consistency to spread
  3. Be very careful with the orange juice as the mixture can become too soft very fast
  4. Use as icing on any cake desired.

To make a very rich cake I often dip Marie Cookies in dessert wine and make layers with the butter cream and cookies. Make the layers of butter cream very thin. This cake must stand for an hour or so before it can be eaten to allow the flavors to develop
