    List of Ingredients

    Creamy Maple Nut Cake

    1/2 cup butter, softened
    1-1/4 cups brown sugar
    2 eggs
    1 tsp vanilla
    2 cups all purpose flour
    1 tbsp baking powder
    1/2 tsp salt
    1 cup milk

    2 (8 oz) cream cheese, softened
    1 cuppure maple syrup
    1/4 cup pecan halves


    Preheat oven to 350F. Line the bottoms of two buttered 8-inch round cake pans with parchment paper.

    Beat butter in a large bowl until creamy. Blend in sugar until fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating between additions. Stir in vanilla.

    Blend flour with baking powder and salt in another bowl. In three additions, alternating with milk , add the flour to the butter mixture. Beat well between additions.

    Divide batter between pans. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes or until cakes spring back when lightly touched. Cool on a rack.

    Beat cream cheese until smooth, about 5 minutes. Add half the maple syrup and beat until well combined. Slice each cake layer in half to make two more layers.

    Place the bottom layer of the cake on a platter and brush top with some of the remaining maple syrup. Frost with a thick layer of frosting that just droops over the side of the cake. Repeat with additional layers. Sprinkle with pecans.
