Membuat Butter Cake atau Kek Mentega ada pelbagai kaedah/cara seperti Creaming, All-In atau pun Separated Eggs method. Just to share a very basic butter cake recipe from chef Alex Goh using the Creaming method. I'm pretty sure most of us know how to do it yaa..


250 gm butter
200 gm sugar
5 eggs
210 gm flour ( I used HK flour)
1/2 tsp baking powder
.... I add in 1 tsp of vanilla essence.


1) Place butter, vanilla and sugar in a mixing bowl. Cream till light and fluffy.
2) Add in eggs one at a time and mix evenly.
3) Cream the batter till smooth and light.
4) Lastly fold in the flour and mix till well blended.
5) Pour the batter in a cake mould of any shape.
6) Bake at 180 degrees for about 50 minutes.

hi rozzan. i'm looking for a great recipe for butter cake and i accidentally found yours. your butter cake's photo looks really interesting. i'd like to try this recipe, but i'm not sure if i do understand right about your description. so i think i should ask you about the method before.

well, my question is, should i put
in all eggs at the same time or one after the other. thanks in advance for your answer.

You should put in the eggs one at a time and continue beating after putting each egg. Hope that explains.

Hi bro
Happen to see ur blog
May i know what is the KK flour u meant here?
I would lke to know
whenever i back cake its not intact like ur pic..
my friend says its because of air while stiring.. what shall i do to have a nice texture cake?

BR said...

HK stands for Hong Kong. It's Hong Kong flour. To bake a nicely textured cake, you'll need to ensure that every stage of the process must be done with care. For example, when creaming the butter/sugar, make sure the butter becomes fluffy and the sugar has 'dissolved'. Add the eggs one at a time while continue beating after each addition. And most impt, when you fold in the flour. Put a little at a time and stir in one direction. Also ensure the flour is well-mixed with the butter/eggs mixture. Hope that explains.

Hi Sarah,
Perhaps you can substitute abt 20 gm of the flour with cocoa powder and sift them together before you fold into the egg/butter mixture.

You can use all purpose flour tp kena taruk baking powder ya. Selalunya cuma tp naik sendiri yg dah ada baking powder di dlmnya. Hope that explains.

Hi Mr Lee

Thank you for trying out the recipe. I'm sorry it didnt turn out well for you.

The baking temp of 180 degrees tu sekadar garis pandu jer. Sometimes, depending on the oven size; big or small, you kena adjust the temperature.

Also, kdg2 the position of the rack in the oven (where u place the cake mould) pun kena betul. If it is too high up, then kek masak di luar tapi mentah di dalam. Kalau too low, the cake take a much longer time to cook.

My advice is, dont give up! Give it a 2nd try. Take note not to make the same mistake again ya. Hope that explains.
