Butter Up Your Valentine!



 
Valentine's Day is the perfect time  to butter up your favorite sweeties!  I found this recipe in the Land of Lakes  online recipe  file a couple of weeks ago and decided it would be a  perfect  butter up treat for my family. After watching my family enjoy this cake with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and strawberries, I'm adding the recipe to the family favorite file with a special note to myself when I need a recipe for buttering them up!
 
Butter Cake With Browned Butter Frosting
2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 2/3 cups sugar
1 cup Butter,softened
1 cup buttermilk
4 eggs
1 teaspoon soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla

Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Combine all cake ingredients in large bowl. Beat at low speed, just until just moistened. Increase speed to high. Beat,scraping bowl often, until well mixed.

Pour batter into greased 13x9-inch baking pan. Bake for 35-45 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool completely.

Frosting:
6 tablespoons butter
3 cups powdered sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
3 to 4 tablespoons milk

Melt 6 tablespoons butter in 1-quart saucepan over medium heat. Continue cooking,stirring constantly and watching closely, until butter just starts to turn golden(4 to 6 minutes). (Butter will get foamy and bubble.) Remove from heat. Cool completely.

Combine browned butter,powdered sugar and 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla in small bowl. Beat at medium speed, gradually adding enough milk for desired spreading consistency. Frost cooled cake.

 
Happy Valentine Day!
