Pound Cake aka Butter Cake

Baked pound cake this morning. The crust was a little too burnt because I left the batter in the oven to bake while I went to Cold Storage to grab a few things. I came back late and the cake was left in the oven a 'lil too long. Sigh...

But anyhow, it tasted good. Everyone says so except for Shu-Min who says the cake 'not enough taste'. Maybe I should use a better butter. Should use SCS brand butter and not Buttercup brand . Hey, butter is expensive, OK? Shu-Min is not donating me any money and I keep baking her stuff to eat. Blueks!

I ommitted the vanilla essence in the recipe but I used the zest of an orange to have a tinge of orange flavour. It turned out to have a very flavourful orange smell which I love.

OK, a picture paints a thousand words. So here goes:

I used Tatura butter, its about rm5.40 bought in Bake with Yen (Petaling Jaya). It gives quite good results. Buttercup does not give a buttery taste. It tastes more like margarine. The next time you're down in PJ, I take u to Bake with Yen to stock up some butter. Cheers, Jennifer

jennifer, this cake was done ages ago. nowadays i use SCS butter or Golden Churn. :)

I seldom go down PJ. Actually I cant even differentiate between KL, PJ, Selangor, etc. All are KL to me. Haha

Both Golden Churn & SCS butters are expensive. But gives a very creamy & buttery taste. KL is in town-heavy traffic area and this is in Wilayah, PJ is Petaling Jaya-less crowded place and its in Selangor.
