For anyone who is a fan of maple syrup, this cake will become a personal favorite!  Simply put, it is moist, delicious, and quite easy to make!  This cake recipe, unlike a store bought cake mix, may take a bit longer to make but just like maple syrup itself, this cake is worth the process it goes through in creating it.  In the end, your efforts will be appreciated!

Ingredients for Cake:

  • 1 ½ cups of all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup of unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 2 teaspoons of baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon of baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon of salt
  • ¾ cup of pure maple syrup
  • ½ cup of granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs (add one at a time, I give each a quick whisk before I add it)
  • ½ cup of milk, at room temperature

Directions for Cake:

  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees
  2. Butter a 9 x 9 baking dish, line the bottom with parchment paper, butter and flour the parchment paper.
  3. In a medium sized bowl whisk together your dry ingredients: flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  4. In a large sized bowl beat your wet ingredients: maple syrup, butter and sugar for 3-5 minutes, till nice and fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time, beat, then add in the vanilla.
  5. Add your dry ingredients to your wet ingredients, and beat until well blended.
  6. Pour the batter into your prepared baking dish.
  7. Bake at 350 degrees, for 25-35 minutes, just until golden on top.
  8. Cool the hot cake pan on a rack for 10 minutes, now remove the pan from the cake and cool your cake completely on the cooling rack.

Frosting Ingredients:
