Makes One (10-inch) Kentucky Butter Cake

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 1 hour

Total Time: 1 hour, 20 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup (2 sticks) butter
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 3 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla or rum extract
  • .
  • Glaze:
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup butter
  • 3 tablespoons water
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla or rum extract

Preparation:

Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.

Grease a 10-inch Bundt pan with a nonstick spray and dust lightly with flour; set aside. In a medium bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Set aside.

In the bowl of a standing mixer fitted with the paddle, beat the butter and sugar for 3 minutes at medium speed. Lower mixer speed and add eggs, one at a time. Continue to beat for 1 minute.

Alternate adding the flour mixture and buttermilk, ending with the flour. Add vanilla or rum extract. Beat on medium-high speed for 20 seconds. Pour batter into prepared pan, and bake for about 60 minutes, or until a wooden toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.

To make the glaze: In a small saucepan, combine sugar, butter, water and vanilla or rum extract. Do not boil. When the cake comes out of the oven, prick it with a wooden skewer or fork. Pour the glaze slowly over the cake. Let the cake cool completely before removing it from the pan.
