How to Make 1-2-3-4 Cake with Caramel Icing

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven 350.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, cream the butter and sugar together with an electric mixer until smooth add the eggs and continue beating until smooth.
  3. In a bowl, mix the flour and baking powder together and add alternately with the milk to the butter mixture, beating steadily until smooth.
  4. Add the vanilla and beat until well blended.
  5. Grease and flour three 9 inch cake pans, divide the batter evenly among the pans, "spank" the bottom of the pans to distribute the batter evenly, and bake until a straw inserted in centers comes out clean, 25 to 30 minutes. Let cool completely.

  7. Add the powdered sugar and mix until well blended.
  8. When the cake layers are cooled, remove from the pans, place one layer on a cake plate and spread one third of the icing on the layer.
  9. Place a second layer over the icing and spread with more icing.
  10. Top with the third layer and spread icing over the top and around the sides.
