Basic Butter Cake, TMX style


based on recipe posted here

this makes a large cake (it's the original recipe doubled) so feel free to halve it :)

320g white sugar
mill into caster sugar by using speed 6 for approx 5-10 seconds
add the butterfly into the bowl

250g soft butter, cut into pieces 2 tspn vanilla essence
add and mix at speed 4 for 40-50 seconds until the mix is light in colour and a little fluffy looking

turn speed down to 2 and add
4 eggs - ONE at a time
after each egg turn speed up to 4 for 5 seconds

add 1 cup SR flour with lid off,
turn speed up to 4, mix 5 seconds

turn speed back to 2 and add
1/2 cup milk through lid, mix 3 seconds

add 1 cup SR flour with lid off,
turn speed up to 4, mix 5 seconds

turn speed back to 2 and add
1/2 cup milk through lid, mix 3 seconds

add final 1 cup SR flour with lid off,
turn speed up to 4 and mix 5 seconds
(total 3 cups self raising flour and 1 cup milk)

mix for a further 10 seconds until the mix seems light and fluffy.

pour into a greased, lined cake tin. cooking times will vary according to your oven and size of tin but start with 40 mins at around 160-180'c, test with a skewer and cook further as required.

Looks great - but we need a pickie out of the tin, with loads of sickly sweet icing too!
