How to Make Kentucky Butter Cake
Step 1: Prepare the oven. Preheat it to 350 degrees.
Step 2: Then, grease and flour well a 10-inch or 12 cups bundt pan.
Step 3: Whisk the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a large bowl.
Step 4: In another bowl, cream the butter and sugar for about 5 minutes until light and fluffy.
Step 5: In a small bowl or measuring cup, mix the milk with the vinegar.
Step 6: Add in the eggs one at a time into the butter-sugar mixture. Keep stirring until well mixed before adding in the vanilla. Then, mix in the milk-vinegar mixture alternately with the dry ingredients. Stir until well combined.
Step 7: Transfer the mixture in spoonfuls into the prepared bundt pan.
Step 8: Place inside the preheated oven and bake for about 50 to 60 minutes or until the toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.
Step 9: Once done, remove from the oven but let the cake stay in the pan.
Step 10: Use the smaller end of a chopstick or similar sized tool to poke holes in the cake. Make sure to not go all the way through the bottom.
Step 11: Meanwhile, combine the sugar, butter, and brandy in a small saucepan. Cook over medium-low heat, stirring frequently until melted. Make sure to not bring the mixture to a boil. Then, remove from the heat and stir in the vanilla.
Step 12: Carefully and gradually pour the glaze over the poked holes and let the cake cool for at least 30 minutes before removing it from the pan.
