“Handed down from my Nana, this is a very simple, plain yet moist and fudgy cake. Serve with whipped cream or your favorite ice cream.”
1hr 15mins

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 325.
  2. Cream butter and sugar in a medium bowl with a portable mixer or a stand mixer.
  3. Add eggs one at a time till incorporated.
  4. Add syrup and vanilla.
  5. Turn off mixer and stir in the flour and baking powder by hand (it's less messy this way -- )
  6. Pour batter into a lightly greased and floured 9 inch springform pan and bake for one hour and 15 minutes.
  7. Let cool and release cake from pan. Enjoy!
  8. Note: I always go for less time (one hour) for an extra-moist cake, but it's still good if you go for the full hour and 15. This can also be made in 2 8in. cake pans if you want a layer cake, but definitely decrease the baking time.
