Butterscotch Cake with Caramel Icing Yummy


ingredients

3 cups brown sugar
1/3 cup butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
3 eggs
3 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/3 teaspoon salt
1 cup Buttermilk

how to make it

preheat oven to 340 degrees grease and flour - or line with parchment -two 10 or three 7 round pans
cream the butter and sugar with an electric mixer on medium until fluffy add vanilla then add eggs one at a time beating on low just until they are mixed in
In a separate bowl sift together the flour baking soda baking powder and salt starting with the flour mixture add the flour and the buttermilk - alternating one then the other-  into the sugar egg mixture on low speed when everything is mixed in scrape down the bowl by hand
pour batter into the pans and bake for 20-35 minutes until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean
cool before frosting
Caramel Icing:
1 1/3 cups brown sugar
1 tablespoon flour
1/4 cup butter  - plus 2 tablespoons for later - 
1/3 Cup Milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
In a small saucepan mix together all ingredients except the vanilla and the extra 3 tablespoons of butter heat over medium and bring to a boil stirring frequently to prevent burning let the mixture boil for a good one minute  - I actually use a candy thermometer and let it reach 230 degrees but if you don’t have one just make sure you boil it for a good solid minute -
take off the fire and add in the vanilla and the 3 tablespoons butter cool the mixture occasionally giving it a vigorous stir until it is still warm  - but not hot - and has thickened enough to spread spread it over the cake moving fairly quickly because it will set as it cools It will be a thin coating not a thick layer let it set completely before cutting into the cake
