My Little Stick O' Butter Bundt Cake

I have to say that this cake is by far the softest texture I have ever achieved for a Bundt Cake. I attribute that to sifting cake flour twice.....and....to beating by hand, so there is less air in the batter.....and I don't think the butter hurt anything either. Next time I hear, "Let them eat cake!"....I'm gonna think of my "Little Stick O' Butter Cake".
