Kentucky Butter Cake

Hello everyone, I found a great recipe for you to try...My first time ever hearing the word Kentucky Butter Cake was at my brother and sister-in-laws church. The Pastor mentioned it, and of course that peaked my interest. I went online and found the recipe, very easy, very simple I had to try it....and let me tell you it was Delicious!!!!

I have several amazing pound cake recipe, however this one is right up there with the best, I will be adding Kentucky Butter Cake to my list of favorites. You all know how I like to tweak and change a recipe to make it my own, well this one I wouldn't change a thing...

with glaze poured over top...yummy

                                                   glaze under bottom...!!!

3 cups unbleached flour
2 cups white sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup buttermilk
1 cup butter

2 teaspoons vanilla extract
4 eggs
3/4 cup white sugar
1/3 cup butter
3 tablespoons water
2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 325. Grease and flour a 10 inch Bundt pan.

In a large bowl, mix the flour, 2 cups sugar, salt, baking powder and baking soda. Blend in buttermilk, 1 cup of butter, 2 teaspoons of vanilla and 4 eggs. Beat for 3 minutes at medium speed. Pour batter into prepared pan.

Bake in preheated oven for 60 minutes, or until a wooden toothpick inserted into center of cake comes out clean. Prick holes in the still warm cake. Slowly pour sauce over cake. Let cake cool before removing from pan.

To Make Butter Sauce: In a saucepan combine the remaining 3/4 cups sugar, 1/3 cup butter, 2 teaspoons vanilla, and the water. Cook over medium heat, until fully melted and combined, but do not boil.

1. to prick holes, a coffee stirer would be ideal, however I didn't have I use spaghetti yes I said spaghetti I used 3 uncooked stalks of spaghetti and pricked holes so the glaze could go deeper...hey you have to use what you can I held them together as I pricked the cake
2. don’t overcook cake
3. may be serve warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream
4. I preferred the cake cooled and by the next day it was even more delicious.

*If you have a dessert recipe that you are having trouble with or afraid to try, please send it to me along with a picture and I will give it a shot….
P.S. I don’t like coconut 

I hope you enjoy
