Easy Kentucky Butter Cake

Kentucky Butter Cake

This cake recipe 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 recipe is dense almost like a pound cake. The best part about this butter cake recipe apart from its buttery taste is the cream cheese glaze that soaks right into the cake to make it even moister and then topped with some crunchy nuts and toasted coconut that is slightly browned until golden.
