Maple Cake
55 mins (prep 30, cooking 25)
15 ingredients
2 servings
I was on a hunt for a maple cake recipe to make for a friend's birthday and after searching this and a few other sites, I found this recipe on the Food Network site, but was cautious about making it because it had more negative reviews than positive ones. A trial run allowed me to tweak it before serving it tonight. The recipe originally comes from The Magnolia Bakery Cookbook by Simon & Schuster (1954). Comments from the Food Network are that the icing requires constant whipping but the results are worth it; I don't know--I used a maple buttercream frosting instead. But I'll post both, even though the amounts for the buttercream are more to preference (and I didn't really measure).
