Cornflour Butter Cake

"In an attempt to lose weight, I have cut out wheat and some other products out of my diet (it's working by the way! lol)... Today I wanted to make a cake. I searched everywhere for a cake recipe made with corn flour instead of other flours and I couldn't find one anywhere. So I made my own, and was quite pleased with the result!! edit: I'm not sure why the "nutritional value" is so high on the side.. please note that if you do click on the detailed view, you'll find that each serving is 377 calories... NOT over 2000, thank you. :)."

  • Preheat oven to about 170 degrees Celcius.
  • Beat vanilla, butter and both sugars well, add the egg and continue beating until nice and creamy.
  • Mix in the corn flour and baking powder and slowly add the milk, mix gently until combined and then beat well again - I like to alternate between high speed and low speed.
  • Pour into a cake tray and bake for approximately 40minutes or until when poked through the poker comes away clear with no residue.
  • Serve warm, spreaded with butter :).

    What size of cake pan should you use?

    Everyone (my son, husband, and I) LOVED the taste of this cake, and that's why we gave it 5 stars. However, I made it in a muffin/cupcake pan and had to scoop them out with a spoon because they were very crumbly. Next time, I'm going to use a cake pan.

    What with the celcius, this recipe may have been written by a British person. If it was, they're talking about corn starch, not corn flour. Very different things. No way to know which it was from this, I'm afraid. It kinda looks more like corn starch, though. That's very fine textured.

    if youre cooking in a standard 9x9 i would recommend doubling the recipe and making the butter fully melted to thin the batter up a bit. other than that its a great recipe

    Tried twice, cake failed to rise and was far too buttery.

    I am very happy with the cake and it is very easy to make too. Will keep this wonderful recipe and thanks for sharing.


Hullo :) My name is Belinda and I am a 22yr old mummy who lives in Queensland of Australia. I live with my partner and my 3yr old daughter, who both absolutely love my cooking. I've been stalking Recipezaar for years now, and finally bought my own account, YAY. I used to be one of those people who lived in microwavable packaged food, but have since discovered the joys and yumminess of home cooking! I love most food.... but I've recently made a lifestyle change which restricts potato, wheat, and rice in my diet. I look forward to finding masses of low-carb recipes and making my own :-)
