Heat oven to 350?. In large mixer bowl combine sugar and 3/4 cup butter. Beat at medium speed until creamy (1-2 minutes). Add egg yolks and vanilla. Continue beating, scraping bowl often, until well mixed (1 minute). Reduce speed to low. Beat, gradually adding flour, baking powder and salt alternately with half-and-half and scraping bowl often, until well mixed (1-2 minutes). Batter will be thick. Divide batter between 2 greased and floured 8-inch round cake pans. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 5 minutes, remove from pan. Cool completely. Meanwhile, in 1-quart saucepan, melt butter over medium-low heat until lightly browned (4-5 minutes). In small mixer bowl combine all frosting ingredients except milk. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often and gradually adding enough milk for desired spreading consistency. Spread frosting between cooled cake layers; frost entire cake. Yields 16 servings. TIP: Cake can be baked in a 13x9-inch baking pan; bake for 25-30 minutes. LAND O LAKES BUTTER RECIPE Downloaded from G Internet, G Internet.
