Susan’s Butter Cake

Susan-CunninghamCake Ingredients

●  3 cups all-purpose flour
●  2 cups sugar
●  1 tsp salt
●  1 tsp baking powder
●  1/2 tsp baking soda
●  1 cup buttermilk
●  1 cup butter
●  2 tsp vanilla extract
●  4 eggs

Preheat the oven to 325°F, and grease and flour a winch Bundt pan.  In a large bowl, mix the flour, sugar, salt, baking powder, and baking soda, then blend in the buttermilk, butter, vanilla, and eggs.  Beat the batter for 3 minutes at medium speed, then pour it into the Bundt pan.  Bake for 60 minutes, checking to make sure the cake passes the toothpick test.


Topping Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup butter
  • 3 Tbsp water
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract

When the cake is almost done baking, combine the four topping ingredients in a saucepan, then cook over medium heat until fully melted and combined.  Do not boil.


Prick holes in the still warm cake (with skewers or something similar), and slowly pour the topping over the cake. Let the cake cool before removing from the pan.
