Susan's Butter Cake Recipe

Ingredients
<br>- 3 cups cake flour
<br>- 1 teaspoon baking powder
<br>- ½ teaspoon baking soda
<br>- 1 teaspoon salt
<br>- 1 cup butter, softened
<br>- 1 ½ cups white sugar
<br>- ½ cup brown sugar
<br>- 4  eggs
<br>- 2 tablespoons vanilla extract
<br>- 1 cup sour cream
<br>- 1 cup white sugar
<br>- ½ cup butter
<br>- ¼ cup water
<br>- 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
<br><p></p>Directions
<br>step 1: Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Grease and flour a 10 inch tube pan. Sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Set aside.
<br>step 2: In a large bowl, cream together 1 cup butter, 1 1/2 cups white sugar and 1/2 cup brown sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the vanilla.  Beat in the flour mixture alternately with the sour cream, mixing just until incorporated.
<br>step 3: Pour batter into prepared pan. Bake in the preheated oven for 75 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean. Remove cake from oven and immediately prick cake all over with a wooden pick 20 to 30 times. Pour butter sauce over cake. Allow cake to cool completely as cake is very fragile when warm. Run a knife around the edges of the pan and invert cooled cake onto a serving dish. Dust with powdered sugar.
<br>step 4: To make the Butter Sauce:  Heat 1 cup sugar, 1/2 cup butter, 1/4 cup water and 1 tablespoon vanilla over medium heat until sugar dissolves, about 10 minutes. Do not boil.
