Today I made Iced Liqueur Layer Cake!
1 1/2C flour, 2t baking powder, 1t cinnamon, 1/2t salt, 1t ground nutmeg, 1t ground cloves, 1/2C fruit liqueur such as apple schnapps or kirsch, 1/2C butter, 1C brown sugar, 3 eggs
Icing: 1/3C liqueur, 3-4C powdered sugar
Preheat oven to 350F.
Cream butter and brown sugar. Add eggs. Blend well. In separate bowl, sift together dry ingredients. Add to butter mixture alternately with liqueur, beginning and ending with dry. Turn into greased 9″X13″ pan. Batter will spread to edges of pan when baking. Bake 30-35 minutes or until cake moves away from sides of pan. Cool 20 minutes. Remove from pan and slice in half. Layers will be thin.
To make icing, stir powdered sugar into liqueur until smooth and barely pourable. Pour onto one half of cake, spreading evenly. Place second half on top. Pour on remaining icing. Spread evenly. Chill one half hour or more before slicing and serving.
