Instructions Heat oven to 375 degrees F. Line a 9-inch cake pan with parchment paper. Butter the sides and bottom of the cake pan. Take 1-2 teaspoons of sugar and sprinkle it over the bottom and sides of the cake pan. In the bowl of a stand mixer, add the butter and beat with the sugar until fluffy. Gradually beat in the flour and baking powder until combined with the butter/sugar mixture. Add eggs in one at a time. Beat in vanilla and almond extract. Add buttermilk and beat until the batter is light and fluffy. Pour batter into a prepared cake pan, and bake for 50-60 minutes or until the cake is golden. It is done when a wooden skewer inserted in the middle of the cake comes out clean. Let cake cool in the pan for about 5 minutes. Carefully invert onto a cooling rack to cool further. Serve with vanilla ice cream. Did You Know? California Pizza Kitchen definitely has a unique origin. Have you ever felt the need for a major career switch? Be thankful that Rick Rosenfield and Larry Flax felt the need for one, otherwise, we wouldn't have California Pizza Kitchen! The pair were originally attorneys that decided to enter the restaurant business by focusing on California-style pizza. On March 27th, 1985 the first restaurant opened in Beverly Hills, California. The Original Barbeque Chicken Pizza that has become so popular is credited to this establishment. Thank goodness for that! Today, California Pizza Kitchen has hundreds of locations in 16 countries and  over 14,000 employees. If one of those many locations isn't near you, you can still enjoy the delicious flavor of California-style pizza with their make-at-home frozen pizzas. You can find them in the freezer aisle of most grocery stores. Also, good news for gluten free foodies: they have gluten free pizza crust, too!


If you are looking for a sweet dessert to impress guests, then this California Pizza Kitchen Copycat Butter Cake is the dessert you are in search of. The butter cake recipe is a California Pizza Kitchen classic and easy to recreate at home. The butter cake recipe has a cake-y base and a cheesecake-like topping. The two textures meld to create the perfect bite of heaven. The cake forms a gorgeous crust and golden top, making it a great dessert to serve with guests. This cake recipe is deceptively simple. You could eat it by itself or serve it up with a scoop of ice cream. You could also use it as the base of a rich and delicious strawberry shortcake, like they do at California Pizza Kitchen.

Have you ever had the butter cake from California Pizza Kitchen? If not, you should. Then, if you love it as much as I do, you should make it at home with this recipe. It’s not exactly like the butter cake from CPK (it never is), but it’s pretty darn close.


Hi Theresa. This is the only butter cake recipe that has ever been on my blog, but I think I know what you’re referring to. A link to this post was recently added to a recipe website. It was added because a prior butter cake recipe blog post was deleted and no longer exists. That may be what you’re referring to. I’m sorry I can’t help more.

That’s where the conversation abruptly ended. We all agreed that yes, the Butter Cake we had had at CPK was the best thing any of us had ever tasted. I actually had a childhood cake experience that came quite close, but that’s not important right now.

These menu items are made using gluten-free ingredients based on information from our suppliers. However, due to our current kitchen space, only the pizzas listed on our separate Gluten-Free pizza menu can be prepared using GIG's certified procedures. These non-certified menu items are prepared in shared cooking and preparation areas and may not be completely free from gluten. Guests should inform a manager of any gluten intolerance and consider individual dietary needs when ordering. Before placing your order, please inform a manager if anyone in your party has a food allergy or dietary restriction and consult our Allergen & Vegetarian/Vegan Menu Guide. Normal kitchen operations involve shared cooking and preparation areas and cross-contact with other foods may occur during production or we may need to substitute ingredients in menu items. We are therefore unable to guarantee that any menu item is completely free from any particular allergen or animal product, and we assume no responsibility for guests with food allergies, food sensitivities or dietary restrictions (unless it is a certified gluten-free pizza).


Hi JoAnne… I don’t think I left that ingredient out of the recipe, but the cake does rise. Mine did without it. I’ll have to try this recipe again to be sure I didn’t forget to include it in the blog post and let you know to be sure! Mascara Maven and More / December 30, 2016 Reply (in reply to JO ANNE)


Sounds like it’s definitely worth a try. I have all the ingredients so I will make it tomorrow! But I was wondering what size of pan you use? You mentioned in a comment a “standard” round cake pan. I have 8, 9, 10 12, 14 and 16 inch round cake pans. So I’m not sure which the standard is.
