Dutch Butter cake.

Have you ever saw something and went “holy crap that sounds amazing! ”
Yes, we all have. Especially if you frequent Pinterest like me. I’m always pinning cakes, cookies, elie saab,and geek stuff. #nerdalert
Anyways, I got bit by the baking bug. And since it was raining I figured why not. So we cracked open some butter, threw some flour, and got busy baking!


Dutch Butter cake is so yummy and so flakey. It is like a very rich shortbread like cake. And really all it requires is 4 basic ingredients.  Salt,flour, sugar,and butter. We added a small amount of vanilla. Because we love it!

You will need for this delicious and very sweet cake.
2 sticks unsalted butter. Or salted and just omit salt.
2 cups of flour
2/3 cup of sugar
1/4tsp of salt

Preheat oven to 350 and line and 8×8 pan with aluminum foil.  You will NOT need no stick spray. The cake is buttery enough.

Melt the butter. In a large bowl put together the flour,salt,and sugar. Add the butter and mix. But do not over mix. The the doughy batter and put into the pan and spread with your fingers until all the batter is even or as even as you can get with a toddler pulling on your arm.
Bake at 350 for 30 minutes. Then let it cool completely. Once that happens get a cup of coffee and transport yourself into a sugary heaven. Just amazing. Perfect snack for having people over to have tea or coffee. Enjoy!
