Off Carte Shares Heirloom Butter Cake Recipe

by: Rosie Dalton | 3 months ago | Features


We’re rolling with the different emotions that come from staying home right now. Some days that means getting our daily greens, other days it’s feeding our sourdough starter, or just being lazy with easy labne. Most days are also cake days, because #cottagecore.

Fortunately, the Off Carte recipe exchange has got something to suit all moods. Founded by Joel Mevissen of Westmont Pickles and our fashion editor Rosie Dalton, Off Carte is a community that supports good food and wine.

In the archives, you will find recipes from chefs, designers and everyone in between. While joining the community means receiving heirloom recipes directly to your inbox. This week, Off Carte shares one of those heirloom recipes with Well Made Clothes – Rosie’s grandmother’s famous Butter Cake.

Here’s how.





2 cups self-raising flour

4 eggs

1/2 cup of milk

1 cup caster sugar

1 stick butter

1 tsp vanilla extract



1. Beat stick of butter with cup of caster sugar and vanilla until fluffy and creamed (approx. 5)

2. Add eggs one at a time, beating lightly 

3. Fold in 2 cups self-raising flour using a spatula, then gently mix in 1/2 cup milk. Desired consistency is not too thick, not too runny 

4. Pour mixture into greased loaf tin and bake for approx. 40 at 150 C, or until a skewer comes out clean

5. Turn out and serve cake naked, with a sprinkling of cinnamon and a cup of tea. Or give it a buttercream, vanilla bean, or passionfruit icing (just like my grandmother’s)
