Ingredients

CAKE:

2 1/2 c
all purpose flour
1/4 c
cornstarch
4 tsp
baking powder
1/2 tsp
salt
2 tsp
ground ginger
1 tsp
ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp
ground nutmeg
1/2 tsp
ground allspice
1/2 tsp
ground cloves
1 c
milk
3 large
eggs
2 tsp
vanilla extract
1 c
butter, softened
2 c
dark brown sugar

FROSTING:

6 Tbsp
butter
16 oz
box powdered sugar
1/4 c
light cream
1 1/2 tsp
vanilla extract

Directions Step-By-Step

1
FOR CAKE: Whisk dry ingredients and spices in a large bowl. Mix milk, eggs and vanilla in a 2-cup measuring cup.
2
Beat softened butter into dry ingredients, first on low, then medium, until mixture forms pebble-sized pieces. Add about 1/3 of the milk mixture and beat on low until smooth. Add remaining milk mixture in two stages; beat on medium speed until batter is just smooth. Add the sugar; beat until just incorporated, about 30 seconds. Pour batter into a greased and lightly floured 13x9" cake pan.
3
Bake in a pre-heated 350-degree oven on middle rack until a toothpick inserted into the cake's center comes out clean, about 40 minutes. Set pan on a wire rack; let cool for 5 minutes. Run a knife around the pan perimeter and turn cake onto rack. Let cool.
4
FOR FROSTING: Cream butter and gradually add half the sugar, blending well. Beat in 2 Tbsp. cream and the vanilla. Gradually blend in remaining sugar. Add enough of the cream to make it a good spreading consistency. Frost the cake after it has cooled.
