BUTTERMILK CAKE WITH CARAMEL ICING RECIPE

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 2-1/3 cups sugar
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 3 large eggs
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • ICING:
  • 1/4 cup butter, cubed
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 cup confectioners’ sugar

DIRECTIONS

Preheat oven to 350°. Grease and flour a 10-in. fluted tube pan.
Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in vanilla and eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. In another bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder and baking soda; add to creamed mixture alternately with buttermilk (batter will be thick). Transfer to prepared pan.
Bake until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean, 45-50 minutes. Cool in pan 10 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.
For icing, in a small saucepan, combine butter, brown sugar and cream; bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly. Remove from heat; cool 5-10 minutes. Gradually beat in confectioners’ sugar; spoon over cake. Yield: 16 servings.
Editor’s Note: To remove cakes easily, use solid shortening to grease plain and fluted tube pans.
