Butter Cake @ Section 17, Petaling Jaya

I have been slowly exploring Section 17's food joints and one day, I stumbled on this discovery, a drinks stall that also sold homemade butter cake by special order.


Spurred on by some regular customers who had sampled the cake before, I decided to take a risk and order it to try.

Each block was sold for RM10.


I loved the cake's soft moist crumb. Very old fashioned with a bright yellow colour.


While the texture was top class, admittedly it fell short in the aroma department. Not buttery enough with a slight artificial tinge I felt, so maybe they used butter spreads instead of actual butter.

Coincidentally, a friend of mine had bought butter cake from the OUG market (1 box is RM8). While that cake has a strong distinctive buttery smell, the texture is rather firm with a fine tight crumb.


Even though I preferred that OUG version for its taste, in comparison I found it a little too hard versus the other cake that had such a moist loose crumb.

Too bad, I can't get the best of both worlds - the moist crumb from the Section 17 place and a lovely buttery aroma from the OUG market one. I guess I should really just bake my own.


Despite the not so aromatic taste, we did enjoy the cake with maple flavoured ice cream made from rich Hokkaido cream. Simply oishii when paired with the cold treat.

Oh, do hunt for the best butter cake in town and share that with us :)

My family did like one that came from AmCorp Mall. I forget the name of the bakery, but there's a stall on the ground floor not too far away from the down-escalator.

the section 17 market place one (young guy outside coffeeshop) is the bomb! Only RM5 for a huge slab. It might not be pure butter but it's really tasty and it's so cheap. That's our secret place for butter cake! haha :P

Once she was on my back,ergo baby carrier it felt GREAT! We took a long walk all over the neighborhood and I had absolutely ergo baby carrier uk zero shoulder and back pain like I usually get. I am now a true believer in this carrier and will be using it exclusively as ergo baby Everly grows. (The Ergo Baby also offers an infant insert for tee tiny babes available separately)

Fuh.. I like the butter cake at OUG too! It's really aromatic and nice. Anyway, since my mom loves butter cake and I don't live near OUG, I decided to bake on my own. Probably one of the easiest recipe to date! Got it from Rasa Malaysia!
