Liv Butter - Salted & Unsalted-001
[Baked on 6 Mar 2013]
In order to know if a butter is really good and fragrant, bake a fuss-free butter cake. Thanks to the chefs at SATS, this butter cake was a true testimony of how fragrant and buttery Liv is! Enjoy this dense and creamery Liv Butter cake!
Recipe for LIV Butter Cake, modified from LIV Butter Cake Recipe (halved of the original recipe)
(Makes a 7" square pan, or a 8" round pan)


250g Liv Salted butter, soften at room temperature
250g Top flour (or cake flour)
3 Large eggs (approx. 60g without shells)
4g Baking powder
30g Whole milk (or evaporated milk)
145g Caster sugar


  1. Preheat the oven to 180C and grease or line a 7" square pan.
  2. Beat butter and sugar with a mixer at slow speed until soft, then medium speed till light and fluffy.
  3. Mix top flour with baking powder and sift twice. Set aside.
  4. Break the eggs into a separate bowl and mix, but do not whisk.
  5. Pour the eggs into the batter slowly in three batches. Ensure the egg is absorbed by the batter before adding more.
  6. Fold the sifted flour into the batter slowly, making sure that the batter absorbs the flour evenly.
  7. Mix in the milk and ensure it is incorporated.
  8. Pour the batter into the baking pan and bake in the oven for approximately 45mins, or until a skewer inserted in the middle is clean.

Note: Original recipe says to bake for 30mins. However, after 30mins, my cake centre was still very wet. I continued baking until the centre was cooked. It could likely due to the fact that I only use 160C for my Sharp oven. Try 30mins and adjust accordingly.

Oh~ LIV is my favorite butter ever since I start using it! I did everything with LIV butter, from butter cake, bread to swiss meringue butter cream. It is nice to just spread on bread on it's own! I simply love it! My highest record was having 30 LIV butters in my freezer! :)

I've used both salted and unsalted LIV butter. I used it to bake butter cakes & cupcakes which the kids love, cookies and cakes with it. I love the fragrant and taste!

I have tried it and finds the quality is comparable to those established brands in the market.

To gadget the quality, the best way to do so is Butter Cake and Liv didn't disappoint.

While searching for ingredients for my very first CNY cookie baking, I saw LIV butter on the shelf, After reading thru the ingredients & country of origin, I grabbed the last few block of unsalted ones without hestitation.

I love the taste & frangrant of LIV butter and it give my cashew nut cookies "melt in the mouth" texture.

Whenever I need to stock up butter, it has to be LIV! :)

I've always enjoyed baking and have always insisted on using SCS butter only because I've had horrible experiences with other kinds of butter that tend to make my baked goods taste overly "oily" or weird. I don't know. There's just this taste...

It would be nice if I was given the chance to try out Liv butter.. maybe it might steal my heart away from SCS :)

I would definitely be baking butter cookies (the kjeldsens kind!) if I win these babies!

My kitchen is under reno, I haven't been baking for 2 months, I miss baking terribly! Once my kitchen is ready in 2 weeks' time, I'm gonna bake with a vengeance, I need lots of butter!!!!!! I think the first thing I'm gonna bake is some yummy Danish Butter Cookies, and there's a pound cake recipe that I wanted to try. Maybe some salted caramel cupcakes with salted buttercream. Yep, I need lots of butter!!

Butter is a staple in my kitchen. I am new to baking but I am constantly looking for a good quality butter to bake cakes and cookies, that appeals to the tastes of many. I will be using the LIV butter to bake a butter cake if I win the giveaway.

I've tried LIV butter previously and made peanut butter oatmeal cookies with them. They turned out pretty good! If I win the butter I would definitely be using them to make Danish pastries and swiss meringue buttercream!

I've never tried LIV butter before. Butter cake needs good butter so I am sure LIV butter would be an ideal choice.

Hi, I have never try LIV butter before. I always believe that some cakes will really need good butter in order to taste good. If I win the LIV butter, will want to bake a Marble butter cake and some butter biscuit which is my Husband favourite. It will be a good Birthday Present for me too (my birthday is on April's Fool - 1st April).

Thanks & have a good weekend:)

This butter looks very buttery, soft and moist. All time favourite of my late FIL. Seeing butter cake does bring back memories of him.
