Maple Sugar Cake

1/2 cup butter, softened
1 1/4 cups brown sugar
3 whole eggs
1/2 cup maple syrup
1/4 cup milk
1/4 cup sour cream
1 teaspoon maple flavoring
2 1/2 cups cake flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
1/4 teaspoon ground allspice, nutmeg and mace
Maple Sugar Frosting
6 tablespoons butter, softened
1 1/2 teaspoons maple flavoring
4 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1/2 cup sour cream (1/2 to 3/4)
chopped walnuts, optional

In a mixing bowl, cream butter and brown sugar. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. In a bowl, combine the syrup, milk, sour cream and maple flavoring. In another bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cloves, allspice, nutmeg and mace; add to creamed mixture alternately with syrup mixture.

Pour into two greased and floured 9-in. round baking pans. Bake at 350° for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pans to a wire rack to cool.

For frosting, in a mixing bowl, cream butter and maple flavoring. Gradually beat in the powdered sugar. Add enough sour cream to achieve spreading consistency. Spread frosting between layers and over top and sides of cake. Sprinkle with walnuts if desired. Store in the refrigerator.

Recipe from here.

NOTES: I’m not a huge maple fan, but the frosting was really good! The cakes was pretty easy to make, and hopefully somebody enjoyed it!
