If you're looking for Butter Cake just go to Danish Bakers at 107 Huntingdon Pike in Rockledge. They have the best butter cake in the city and have been there since 1960. I don't think they'll be going out of business anytime soon from what I hear the Grandsons are planning on taking it over.

I have been looking for a bakery that sell old fashioned butter cakes-exactly where is Shillings Bakery located? I live in the suburbs-Collegeville area. I have been looking into Heagele's bakery and a few others in Philly. I remember well the butter cakes my granmother made and the ones my Mom bought-all gooey and delicious!

We will be located in perkiomenville,not far from collegeville, Hopefully sometime next year we will be up and running. I have been sampling the buttercake with great feedback,this will be a very competetive product.

My parent grew up up in the Mayfair & Tacony sections of Phila.
Arried and moved to the Levittown area and treated us to Butter Cake after church on Sunday mornings. As we are a family of nine children, the slices were ver small but unbelieveable and unforgettable. My serch for it now is long and hard. Bakeries are disappearing in New Jersey and do not bake butter cakes. I've had to bake my own and just like the first story, I end up eating the entire cake in a week as my partner won't eat it as it is too sweet. Not for me. I miss this cake.

There is a Bakery in Ocean City, NJ that has butter cake. The real deal. Call early in the AM and reserve one, otherwise you will not get one. Ocean City Italian Bakery, Asbury Ave.

My uncle, Stanley Cierkowski was the baker at Kaltenbach Bakery in Scranton, PA and growing up the big treat was the butter cake. As kids, we only ate the middle with the gooey part. I've been able to re-create it from recipes found on the internet.

Aleta, I was surprised to see that you mentioned Kaltenbach Bakery in Scranton. We use to get a cake from them when I was growing up and I was wondering if you can find out about it. I believe it was a chocolate cake with a whip creme icing.

You mentioned that Stanley Cierkowski was your husbands uncle, which would make your husband my cousin, who is he? I'm not familiar with your name and I know all my cousins - very curious! Those pink cookies always tasted particularly good, I'm not sure if it was the cookie or because I was small and it was a special treat!

I the Autumn of 1970 my family and I lived in Foxchase, Philadelphia where I was working in the Institute for Cancer Research. Every tea time the staff of the department in which I was working would send out to the nearby bakery for cakes. All were good but the one that has always stuck in my mind was the Philadelphia Butter Cake. I still rave about it to my friends back here the UK. I once asked a local bakery to have a go at reproducing it and looked up the menu on the internet for them. Sadly they declined so I shall never taste that glorious gooey vanillary mixture again. Philadelphia may be famous for many things but for me it means butter cake.
