Kentucky Butter Cake


I don't know why this delicious buttercream cake is named after the state of Kentucky, but the recipe has been around since at least 1963, when Neil Lewis of Platte City, Missouri entered it and won a Pillsbury Bake-Off contest. It's an old-fashioned vanilla buttermilk cake dipped in delicious butter and sugar syrup. The syrup not only adds exceptional moisture to the cake, but also creates a crunchy layer on the surface, almost like a polished cake. Kids love it, adults love it—this simple buttery cake is hard to beat. Many thanks to longtime reader, Karen Tannenbaum, for sharing the recipe with me.
