When I was growing up my Mum used to make a Butter Cake each year for our birthday and it’s a tradition I’ve continued with my own kids.  This Thermomix Butter Cake is my ‘go to’ recipe when it comes to my kids birthday cakes as it’s truly so simple to make and can easily be doubled if I need to make a bigger cake.

While this Thermomix Butter Cake tastes great on it’s own, when it’s topped with Buttercream it becomes even more delicious and I can never resist eating a piece – ok maybe two!

    1. Hi Alicia, no you wont need to double the cooking time. How much you increase the cooking time will depend a lot on the size of the pan you use and also your individual oven. 🙂

  1. Thank you for all your recipes. Since I found your page, it’s become my go to for pretty much everything.

  2. Is the picture used pretty accurate on how high it is? I would like to use this recipe to make a rainbow layer cake but that cake looks quite high and wondering if I could separate the batch in half and make 3 different batches rather then 6?

      Hi Tayla,
      The cake in the picture was made using a 6 inch tin. However I recently made a tall layer cake using this recipe for my son’s first birthday and made two batches of this cake using a 20 cm round tin which I then cut in half to create four layers – this gave a really good size layer cake. I hope that helps x

  3. Hi.. did everyone follow the recipe on sugar amount to use for this cake? I was wondering if a reduction in sugar, can this recipe still work? Or using maple syrup to replace sugar? Any idea how much maple syrup to use for this recipe?

      Hi Evelyn, You could try reducing the sugar slightly if you wanted to, however I wouldn’t suggest using maple syrup instead of caster sugar as it will change the texture of the cake. Sorry I can’t be of more help xx
