Servings: 12
Categories: Cakes / Desserts

3  cups  All-purpose flour
3  teaspoons  Baking powder
1  cup  Butter, at room temperature
2  cups  Granulated sugar
4    Eggs
1  cup  Milk
1  tablespoon  Vanilla

1/2  cup  Butter
1  cup  Packed dark brown sugar
1/4  cup  Milk
2  cups  Confectioner's sugar, sifted 10X

1. Preheat oven to 350. Grease three 9-inch round pans. Line bottoms with waxed paper. Grease paper, and flour insides of pans. Combine flour and baking powder in bowl.

2. Beat butter and sugar in another bowl at medium speed until smooth. Add eggs, beating until smooth. At low speed, alternately beat in flour mixture and milk. Beat in vanilla. Scrape into prepared pans, dividing evenly.

3. Bake in 350 oven 20 to 25 minutes or until wooden pick comes out clean. Cool in pans on wire racks 10 minutes. Remove cakes from pans and cool completely on racks.

4. Meanwhile, prepare Icing: Melt butter in saucepan over low heat. Add brown sugar and milk. Bring to boiling, stirring to dissolve sugar. Remove from heat. Cool. Beat 10X sugar into milk mixture until smooth.

5. Frost and stack cake layers on cake plate, Spreading 1/3 cup icing between each layer. Frost top and sides of cake with remaining icing.

* Although the amount of icing seems small, it is enough to frost the cake. If you wish, the recipe may be doubled.
