3 cups flour
3 teaspoons baking powder
1 cup butter, room temperature
2 cups sugar
4 eggs, beaten
1 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup butter
1 cup dark brown sugar, firmly packed
1/4 cup milk
2 cups powdered sugar

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease three 9" round cake pans. Line bottoms with waxed paper. Grease paper, and flour insides of pans. Combine flour and baking powder in bowl. Beat butter and sugar in another bowl at medium speed until smooth. Add eggs, beating until smooth. At low speed, alternately beat in flour mixture and milk. Beat in vanilla. Scrape into prepared pans, dividing evenly. Bake in 350 degree oven for 20-25 minutes or until wooden pick comes out clean. Cool in pans on wire racks 10 minutes. Remove cakes from pans and cool completely on racks. Meanwhile, prepare icing: Melt butter in saucepan over low heat. Add brown sugar and milk. Bring to boiling, stirring to dissolve sugar. Remove from heat. Cool. Beat powdered sugar into milk mixture until smooth. Frost and stack cake layers on cake plate, spreading 1/3 cup icing between each layer. Frost top and sides of cake with remaining icing. MAY WISH TO DOUBLE THE RECIPE FOR ICING.
