Hello guys, I’m here with a very simple recipe that I came across and it looked delicious so I HAD to make it. And because I had EVERYTHING I needed to make it, I made it right away.

Dutch Butter Cake, doesn’t the name just make you wanna melt… Smile I came across this recipe from a new blog I came across when I was googling “how to make pictures sharper”. Their blog is Kevin & Amanda, you have to go check them out. They have a really cool blog with a lot of  great recipes.

So here are the ingredients needed…

2 cups flour
8 ounces unsalted butter
2/3 cup sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
*dash of cinnamon {my own addition, just because I love cinnamon and I think it makes {almost} every baked good better Smile

Dutch Butter Cake
Ok… I only have a before {baking} picture.. :/

1. Preheat oven to 350F.

2. Mix the melted butter with the flour, sugar, salt, and cinnamon until just combined. Don’t over mix and press into an 8×8 pan that’s lined with foil. FYI…you really do not have to spray the foil since the cake batter has enough butter to not stick Winking smile.

3. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes until the edges just start to turn golden. The middle will still be VERY gooey, but the cake is done at this point.

Allow to cool completely before removing foil from pan and cutting into squares. (Unfortantely I did not take any after pictures… I’m not sure why?!?! because it turned out great)


These things are delicious. And I’m amazed how simple the recipe is. I don’t think I’ve ever had a more simpler baked good.

Now because this recipe only calls for loads of butter and sugar, I wouldn’t make this very often, more for a surprise treat when everyone has been eating their greens well all month…lol. But I do want to try it again and substitute the sugar for honey, agave, stevia, or a mix of the two and replace the butter for coconut butter, and the flour for organic whole white wheat flour. And see how that all tastes. I didn’t want to change the original recipe so that I know how it’s suppose to taste.

I hope you guys enjoy as much as I did.
