This cake always tastes better the next day as the butter in the cake makes the texture moister when it sits overnight. The texture of this cake is dense almost like a pound cake. The best part about this butter cake recipe apart from its buttery flavor is the cream cheese glaze that soaks right into the cake to make it even moister and then topped with crunchy nuts and toasted coconut that is slightly browned until golden. Butter cake recipes are the most practical and easiest of all cake recipes because it uses all the readily available ingredients straight from your pantry.
