    Heat oven to 350°F. 

  2. STEP 2

    Melt butter in 2-quart saucepan over medium heat. Continue cooking, stirring constantly and watching closely, 5-8 minutes or until butter just starts to turn golden. (Butter will get foamy and bubble.) Remove from heat. Cool 15 minutes.

  4. STEP 4

    Pour batter into greased 13x9-inch baking pan. Bake 30-35 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool completely.

  5. STEP 5

    Combine remaining browned butter, powdered sugar and vanilla in bowl. Beat at medium speed, gradually adding enough milk for desired spreading consistency. Frost cooled cake.
