 Kentucky Butter Cake with

Kentucky Bourbon Butter Glaze

2 sticks salted butter, softened

2 cups sugar

4 eggs
1 tablespoon vanilla

3 cups all purpose flour

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon baking powder

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 cup buttermilk


1 stuck butter
1 cup sugar
2 tablespoons Kentucky bourbon

2 teaspoons real vanilla

Preheat the oven to 325°F

Prepare  a tube pan or a Bundt  pan with shortening and flour or spray well with bakers joy

mix butter and sugar till smooth add in eggs one at a time

add flour and milk alternating and add in baking powder, salt and baking soda

last add in vanilla

Pour the batter into the prepared pan

bake  1 hour at 325


on stove top , make your bourbon in saucepan by adding 1 stick butter , 1 cup sugar


and then add in 2 Tbsp Kentucky bourbon

and tsp vanilla

Note: (If you don’t have bourbon you can just do 2 Tbsp of water and 2 Tbsp of vanilla and just call it a Kentucky Butter Cake, it will still be good, not as good but good

(don’t cook or boil just melt till sugar is dissolved)

Poke holes all over the warm cake using a knife and pour the glaze evenly on the cake while still in the pan.


Your cake may not be the prettiest, it may even dent in a little where all the heavy syrup pools and soaks down into the cake but don’t let it bother you.

Let cake cool in the pan. Then invert onto a serving plate.
You should have a very rich buttery, moist cake.

Everyone likes it with the exception of one of my brothers kids so try it and see what you think


Once cooked completely and glaze is set then invert the cake onto a plate.
