Butter Overload: Kentucky Butter Cake Review

Image Source: Allrecipes

As a lover of baked goods, I’m always searching for new and tasty recipes. However, sometimes nothing beats the warm feeling of classic, passed-down sweets. That being the case, the Kentucky Butter Cake recipe from Allrecipes is the absolute best recipe for that homey, comfortable feel.

The prime ingredient is right in the name of this delicious cake, butter! Calling for one cup of butter as well as another one-third cup for the sauce, Kentucky Butter Cake surely does not disappoint in regards to richness. Aside from the influx of butter involved in this delicious dessert, the remainder of the ingredients are relatively similar to most other bundt cakes. However, what sets Kentucky Butter Cake apart from the rest has to be the mouthwatering butter sauce seeped into the cake, giving it a nice moisture.

Making its debut at the Pillsbury Baking Contest in 1963, Kentucky Butter Cake has proven itself to be the perfect treat for any occasion, even going on to win the bi-annual competition. As written on food site TastingTable, “Since the recipe first claimed the winning title at a Pillsbury Bake-Off competition, the sugary, buttery treat has captured the hearts and stomachs of bakers and diners for decades.”

Such an easy recipe as Kentucky Butter Cakes’ allows even non-bakers, such as myself, to create something truly delectable. I personally have grown up eating and absolutely loving Kentucky Butter Cake, and even those who haven’t are still able to feel that nostalgic warmth. As an example, a junior here at Tuscarora, Ruby Reardon, has recently had the opportunity to try the tasty recipe, explaining, “Kentucky Butter Cake is the best! I love it so much. The buttery flavor and moist texture are amazing. It’s one of my favorite desserts!”

I strongly encourage anyone and everyone to bake, or at the very least taste test this quick and easy Kentucky Butter Cake recipe. The recipe can be found linked below. Happy baking!
