Today I bumped into one blog for butter cake. Since I had all the ingredients in my kitchen, spontaneous I made the cake. The result ..the cake was extremely buttery and lil bit sweet, but taste yummy especially if there is a cup of coffee/ warm tea then you will enjoy it more and more :-). So I modified the recipe for my blogger reader(s) . Give the recipe a try! :-)
