    Want to hook up with a recipe that's got homemade taste and can be made with a beginner's skill? Then this is for you! This easy, moist yellow cake is covered with a rich, satin caramel frosting. The flavor goes for miles!

    Prep: 15 min - Bake: 33 min - Cool: 1 hr 10 min

    1 package Betty Crocker® SuperMoist® yellow cake mix
    1 cup milk
    1/2 cup butter or margarine, melted and cooled
    1/4 cup sugar
    1 teaspoon vanilla
    1/8 teaspoon baking powder

    1. Heat oven to 350°F. Grease and flour 2 round pans, 9x1 1/2 inches.

    2. Beat all ingredients except Caramel Icing in medium bowl with electric mixer on low speed 1 minute, scraping bowl constantly (batter will be thick). Beat 2 minutes longer. Remove 1/2 cup of batter; cover and refrigerate to use in icing. Pour remaining batter into pans.

    3. Bake 28 to 33 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes; remove from pans to wire rack. Cool completely, about 1 hour. Fill layers and frost cake with Caramel Icing.
