I baked these buns this morning half are for my Nially cause he works so hard and is baby sitting tonit while I go out!! The other half are for my friend grace as part of her bday pressie!!
hope u try them and like them as much as I do
For the Cake:
1/2 cup (1 stick/4 oz./113g) unsalted butter, softened
1 cup granulated sugar
4 large eggs
2 cups (8 oz./225g) cake flour
2 tsp. baking powder
Pinch of salt
2 tsp. vanilla extract
4 tbsp. milk
For the Cake:
Preheat oven to 350°F/180°C. Butter and flour 2 round (8-inch x 1 1/2-inch deep) cake pans.
Line bottom of pans with parchment paper and butter parchment paper.
In a small bowl, combine the flour, baking powder and pinch of salt; set aside.
With electric mixer, cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add the vanilla;
then add the eggs one at a time, mixing well after each addition. On low speed, slowly add the flour mixture.
When flour mixture has been fully incorporated, add the milk, one tablespoon at a time until mixed into batter
With a rubber spatula, scrape batter into prepared cake pans and even out tops with the back of a spoon.
Bake on middle rack of preheated oven until the cakes are beginning to come away from edges of pan and a cake
tester inserted in center of cakes comes out clean, about 20 to 25 minutes. Remove cakes from oven and place pans
on wire rack for 10 minutes, then invert cakes from pans onto racks (right side up), and let cool completely,
approximately 1 hour.
or alternativly do them in bun cases and make fairy/butterfly buns or cupcakes
