1 1/2 tsp
baking powder
1/4 tsp
salt
1 c
milk
1 tsp

CARAMEL ICING

1/2 c

Directions Step-By-Step

1
CAKE: Cream sugar and butter thoroughly. Add eggs, one at a time beating well after each addition.
2
Sift flour with baking powder and salt. Add dry ingredients to batter alternately with milk.
3
Add vanilla.
4
Bake in 3 greased, flour dusted (8 or 9-inch) layer cake tins for about 25 minutes at 350 degrees. For thicker layers, bake in 2 cake tins.

CARAMEL ICING: Combine sugars, buttermilk and butter; cook until soft ball forms in cold water. Remove from heat; add vanilla and soda. Beat until creamy enough to spread. Do not overbeat. The secret of the icing is in the buttermilk.
