Basic Butter Cake - Lady Flo Bjelke-Peterson
« on: March 15, 2012, 10:38:32 am »
This one turned out beautifully as well.  I've iced it with the buttercream icing recipe that was posted here.

Basic Butter Cake - Lady Flo Bjelke-Peterson

Prep Time: 4 min | Cook Time: 30 min | Servings: 1 | Difficulty: Easy

Ingredients:

2 eggs
125g butter
185g sugar
250g self raising flour
1/2 cup milk
pinch salt
1/4 tsp Vanille essence

Directions:

Beat all ingredients in a bowl for 4 minutes.  Pour into a well-greased 18cm cake tin and bake in a moderate oven (180-200C) for 30 minutes.

Thermomix instructions
1. Mill sugar for 10 sec, speed 9
2 Add the rest of the ingredients and mix 2 min, speed 4
3. Scrap jug then mix again another 2 min, speed 4

Iced with Buttercream Icing from Forumthermomix

@HomeMum - thanks for this great recipe. I just used a double batch in my Wilton decorative tin and it worked perfectly. A huge relief after 3 failed attempts using a mudcake recipe which kept sticking.
Being a large tin I think in the end it was baking for about 60 mins in total. I let it cool down for 10 mins. Trimmed off the excess and then flipped onto a large rack.

Thanks for the conversion. Lady Flo can make more than pumpkin scones.

You could add so much to this.

I converted the pumpkin scone recipe ages ago Robyn but have only made them once so can't really remember what they were like.  There don't appear to have been too many testers either.

Just wanted to post and say thanks for this great recipe. I just used a double batch in my Wilton decorative tin and it worked perfectly. A huge relief after 3 failed attempts using a mudcake recipe which kept sticking.

I am now going to put it in the freezer till Thursday. Thaw it overnight and then decorate it Friday for DS1's birthday party on Saturday morning. Will post a pic of the finished cake next week and report back how it ended up tasting.

 @HomeMum, try icing the cake whilst it is still frozen. It will be easier to ice as you won't have a problem with crumbs in the icing.
