Kentucky Butter Cake

Moist and buttery cake made from readily available ingredients with a luscious butter sauce. YUM! From allrecipes.com.

Kentucky Butter Cake


3 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
2 cups white sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup buttermilk (if tolerated)
1 cup unsalted butter, softened
4 large eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Butter Sauce:

3/4 cup white sugar
1/3 cup unsalted butter
3 tablespoons water
2 teaspoons vanilla extract


1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Grease and flour a 10 inch Bundt pan.

2. Make the cake: Mix flour, sugar, salt, baking powder, and baking soda together in a large bowl. Blend in buttermilk, butter, eggs, and vanilla with an electric mixer. Beat for 3 minutes on medium speed. Pour batter into the prepared pan.

3. Bake in the preheated oven until a wooden toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean, about 1 hour.

4. When the cake is almost finished baking, make the butter sauce: Combine sugar, butter, water, and vanilla in a saucepan over medium heat. Cook and stir until fully melted and combined; do not boil.

5. Remove the cake from the oven. Prick holes in the still-warm cake, then slowly pour butter sauce over the top.
