Kentucky butter cake

This Kentucky butter cake recipe is incredibly moist and has a sweet and creamy sauce that crusts the outside and then fills the inside. What’s more, this cake is as good on its own as it is topped with a couple of berries and a bit of whipped cream. This is the winner of the Pound Cake category.

The Kentucky butter cake is very easy to make, and its flavor is simple and creamy. Its texture is also perfect. Its most important component is that it’s topped with a very thick and sweet sauce that’s made with butter and sugar. This combination of ingredients makes the cake incredibly dense and unique. I am in love with this cake. The most important thing about this cake is that it absorbs so much of the sauce that it leaves a very sweet and crispy appearance on the top.
