Butter Cake

Butter Cake

This little Butter Cake is very deceiving. Tiny package, big reward.

I received a message from one of my oldest friends, Jessie Morgan. She’s married now so she has a different last name, but sorry, you will always be Morgan to me. She had a challenge for me and I was happy to except it. She made a copycat Mastro’s Butter Cake that is her husband’s favorite. Mastro’s is a restaurant in Malibu and they had this cake and he asked to have a recreation. Jessie said she tried and it turned out to be a mushy mess.

I’ve been there and I know the disappointment of working hard on a cake you are so excited about and then….mushy mess. (or hard as a rock and so dry you lose all the saliva in your mouth. we don’t need to talk about those though.)

So I took on the challenge and made these little gems. Spoiler alert, these Butter Cakes are unbelievable!! They are a little crisp on the outside, ridiculously moist/gooey in the inside and rich buttery flavor. I can’t say enough about how yummy these are.

If you are looking for a decadent dessert for a special occasion, these would be a crowd pleaser. Add a scoop of ice cream, omg.
