  • Ingredients
     
    * 1 cup butter, softened
    * 2-1/3 cups sugar
    * 3 eggs
    * 1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
    * 3 cups all-purpose flour
    * 1 teaspoon baking powder
    * 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
    * 1 cup buttermilk
    * ICING:
    * 1/4 cup butter, cubed
    * 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
    * 1/3 cup heavy whipping cream
    * 1 cup confectioners' sugar
     
    Directions
     
    * In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in vanilla. Combine the flour, baking powder and baking soda; add to creamed mixture alternately with buttermilk, beating well after each addition (batter will be thick).
    * Pour into a greased and floured 10-in. fluted tube pan. Bake at 350° for 45-50 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack to cool completely.
    * For icing, in a small saucepan, combine the butter, brown sugar and cream. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly. Remove from the heat; cool for 5-10 minutes. Gradually beat in confectioners' sugar until smooth. Drizzle over cake. Yield: 12-16 servings.
