Butter Cake with Browned Butter Frosting
Get started!



2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

1 2/3 cups granulated sugar

1 cup Land O Lakes® Unsalted Butter, softened

1 cup buttermilk  

4 large Land O Lakes® Eggs

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract


6 tablespoons Land O Lakes® Unsalted Butter

3 cups powdered sugar

1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract

3 to 4 tablespoons milk

 *Substitute 1 tablespoon vinegar or lemon juice plus enough milk to equal 1 cup. Let stand 5 minutes.

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Heat oven to 350°F.

  2. STEP 2

    Combine all cake ingredients in large bowl. Beat at low speed, just until just moistened. Increase speed to high. Beat, scraping bowl often, until well mixed. (Batter may look slightly curdled.)

  3. STEP 3

    Pour batter into greased 13x9-inch baking pan. Bake 35-45 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool completely.

  4. STEP 4

    Melt 6 tablespoons butter in 1-quart saucepan over medium heat. Continue cooking, stirring constantly and watching closely, 4-6 minutes or until butter just starts to turn golden. (Butter will get foamy and bubble.) Remove from heat. Cool completely.

  5. STEP 5

    Combine browned butter, powdered sugar and 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla in small bowl. Beat at medium speed, gradually adding enough milk for desired spreading consistency. Frost cooled cake.
