Spice Cake with Quick Caramel Frosting

Spice Cake Ingredients:
2 cups brown sugar
¾ cup butter or shortening
4 eggs beaten
1 cup buttermilk
3 cups cake flour (full)
¾ teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon ground cloves
1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
½ teaspoon salt

Method: Cream shortening and sugar. Add eggs and beat until fluffy. Mix dry ingredients together in a bowl and add alternately to batter with buttermilk. Pour into pan (I use a Bundt pan) and bake at 350 for 40-45 minutes. If using a different pan, adjust times accordingly.

Quick Caramel Frosting

½ cup butter
1 cup brown sugar
¼ cup milk
2 cups powdered sugar

Method: Melt butter and brown sugar together on low heat and boil 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Add milk and heat just until boiling again. Remove from heat and cool slightly. Stir powdered sugar in until smooth.

I use this caramel frosting for many recipes! It is fabulous, delicious and so easy!
