This cake was delicious! The cake itself was very light and fluffy (I didn't melt the butter but softened it which does effect the texture). The frosting was perfect as well. I sifted the powdered sugar to avoid lumps. Just a tip-- the frosting will be so much better if you use it as directed and pour it on when hot. I was making cupcakes so about halfway through the frosting was too difficult to work with and I heated it up again. The result was that the re-heated frosting dried hard and spotty while the original frosting stayed smooth and moist. The first cupcakes I made were just as delicious the second day (they didn't last any longer than that I'm afraid!).
So I too only barrowed the frosting recipe. I'm not sure what I did wrong but it was lumpy after I put the powdered sugar in. I stirred and stirred and no luck. It did taste WONDERFUL, just not as pretty as I would have liked.
I used this frosting to top donuts. My husband just loved them, and he is a maple donut lover. Thanks for the great recipe!
My family really enjoyed this treat. It is nice to have a change from chocolate cake or brownies, but it really delivers on the sweet factor. With a tall glass of milk or a cup of coffee it pleases from the 2 year old to our 86 year old grandma!
Thank you so much for this frosting recipe! I've searched forever to replicate that maple bar donut taste! Yummm! For those of you who like things less sweet, try it (as I did) on yeast buns or cinnamon rolls.
I am not a huge fan of sweets, otherwise this was good
This cake was BETTER than a maple donut! The cake recipe was so moist and the maple frosting was the best! I wouldn't change a thing about this recipe, will be making this again soon. Thank you!
