Butterscotch Pound Cake | Easy Butterscotch Cake

Butterscotch Cake

This is not a typical butterscotch cake. I am yet to make a proper butterscotch cake but in the meantime, here is an easy version of a butterscotch cake! This is a simple butter cake recipe where I added butterscotch essence and used some butterscotch chips. If you love butterscotch cakes, then this makes a perfect tea time snack!

1. Pre heat the oven to 180 degrees C. Grease and line a 9x5 inch loaf pan.

2. Beat the butter and sugar until it's light yellow and well combined.
3. Add the eggs one at a time and beat well along with butterscotch essence.

4. Sift in the flour, baking powder and salt. Fold until combined. 
5. Add the milk and beat again. Do not over beat the batter. Mix in the butterscotch chips.

6. Pour into the prepared pan and tap the pan well. 
7. Bake in the pre heated oven for 45-50 minutes or until a skewer comes out clean.

8. Once done, remove the pan and let it cool for 10 minutes. Then remove the cake from the pan and let it cool completely.

1. Dust the butterscotch chips with some flour before adding to the batter. I forgot and all my chips sunk to the bottom of the cake.
2. Make sure the ingredients are at room temperature.
3. Do not over beat the batter.
4. Baking time may vary depending on your oven.

Until next time,

  1. Ma'am.. This looks tempting.

    How can I make it eggless ??

    1. Hi Vinny, replacing 4 eggs won't work well. Instead choose any good egg free vanilla cake recipe and use butterscotch essence and butterscotch chips :)

  2. Hi Buelah, can u pla help me how to make butterscotch chips pls

    1. Hi Helen, I bought the butterscotch chips in a baking supply store. I think you will get it in Nilgiris too. I have never made butterscotch chips!
