The Best Kentucky Butter Cake Recipe

by Emy

This recipe for Kentucky butter cake is incredibly moist and has a creamy and sweet sauce that fills the inside and outside of the cake. This is a winner in the pound cake category. The cake is topped with berries and a bit of whipped cream.

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.
