How to Make Kentucky Butter Cake
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Generously grease and flour a 10 inch (12 cup) baking pan.
In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy, about 5 minutes.
Mix milk and vinegar in a separate small bowl or measuring cup.
Add eggs one at a time to butter and sugar mixture, stirring only until incorporated. Add the vanilla. Add milk and vinegar mixture and dry ingredients at alternate intervals between the two: stirring only until combined. Place the spoon in the prepared container. Bake for 50-60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Remove from oven but do not remove from pan.
Make holes in the butter cake using the smaller end of a toothpick or similar sized instrument. Come close but not all the way in. In a small pan, add sugar, butter and brandy. Place over medium-low heat and stir very frequently until melted. Do not let it boil. Remove from heat and add vanilla. Pour slowly and carefully over the holes in the pan. Allow the cake to cool for 30 minutes from the time it is removed from the oven before inverting it.
