Maple Cake with Maple Frosting

Maple Cake with Maple Frosting

This Maple Cake with Maple Frosting is deeply flavored with dark maple syrup flavor in both the cake and the frosting. With 3/4 cup of butter and 1/2 cup of maple syrup, the cake is super moist and flavorful. Each layer is topped with a frosting of butter, confectioner's sugar, and maple syrup. Top the frosting with toasted pecans for a delicious fall flavor.

This cake is pretty easy to make and still looks pretty. Plus, it's a smaller cake, with 6 inch layers. Just enough cake but not too much.

Everyone who tried this cake raved about it. Having a slice of this cake might actually remind you of eating waffles or pancakes with maple syrup. In fact we may or may not have had a small slice of this cake for breakfast.

For the syrup, if you can find it, use Grade B maple syrup for a more intense flavor. I couldn't find grade B, but I was able to find pure maple syrup that was labeled "dark." Please, don't substitute the "breakfast syrups" that are "maple flavored." You want the real thing.
