Butter Cake with coffee flavour

Butter cake again??? 
Why not?

I have shared Buter cake in earlier post today my butter cake is made using some other ingredients. 

Today's butter cake recipe is from Alan Ooi's book In love with cakes. With a bit variation to the ingredients.

150 g butter (salted) softened 
100 g margarine ( Planta brand)
200 g caster sugar

4 eggs ( I used 3 only n added 1 tbsp fresh milk)
1/2 tsp coffee emulco ( he used 1 tsp vanilla)

230 g top flour ( I used cake flour)
2 tbsp milk powder
1/2 tsp baking powder

1. Beat Butter Margarine n Caster sugar till fluffy then add in coffee emulco n fresh milk n eggs one at a time. Scrap down after mixing. 

2. Fold in the flour, baking powder n milk powder.

3. Line your 8 inch cake tin n grease the sides which I forgot to grease.

4 Pour batter in n bake at 180 deg celcius preheated oven for 50 mins.  I also scattered almond slices so after 25 mins cooking - please use a aluminum foil n cover the top of cake to prevent further browning of the almond slices.
Test doneness with a tooth pick. 

5. Remove from pan n cool on rack.

Happy baking!!
