This is a buttercake made for the birthday party. Frosted with buttercream frosting and sweet pea flowers.
250 gm butter, room temperature
250 gm flour
200 gm sugar
1 tsp vanilla
2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
3 tbsp milk
In a bowl fitted with a paddle attachment, blend butter and sugar till light and fluffy.
Add one egg at a time beating well after each addition. Slowly add the milk, vanilla, baking powder and flour. Beat till all is combined well.
Pour into a well greased and lined 8 in cake pan. I used a 8 by 3 in cake pan for this. Bake at 350 degrees for about 45 minutes. Test with a wooden skewer for doneness. Take out and let cool for 10 minutes and then turn out to a wire rack. Frost as desired.
