Faery’s Butter Cake.

Faery’s Butter Cake.

Well this not so butter…in fact it has no butter because I used margarine, I love this cake, is so moist, soft and delicious but the best part is: it is very easy to make. Which is good for me because Michele is on vacation, he is a very active boy so I have to look after him 15 hours a day.


1 cup margarine.

1 1/3 cup sugar.

3 cups self raising flour.

¼ teaspoon cream of tartar.

6 egg whites.

6 egg yolks.

1 cup milk. *

½ teaspoon baking powder.

¼ teaspoon salt.

1 tablespoon vanilla essence.

Chocolate whipped cream for the icing

1- Sieve together flour, salt and baking powder.

2- Whisk sugar and margarine until fluffy.

3- Add the essence then the egg yolks one at a time.

4- Then alternate flour and milk.

5- In a clean bowl whisk the egg whites until soft peaks and add the ream of tartar keep whisking until firm picks form.

6- Carefully fold in the egg whites in the butter batter until the batter look homogeneous.

7- Pour the batter in buttered and floured cake pan.

8- Bake at 200 °C until and inserted wooden stick comes out clean.

9- Unmold immediately and let cool before icing.
