I didn't even know that you could make maple cake. I was eating a maple bar one day (we have a local bakery that puts this amazing frosting on them instead of icing/glaze, awesome) and it struck me, maple cake would be so good. I love maple almost as much as chocolate. The first thing I did was google it, and there was such thing as maple cake and recipes to boot.
I found one and made it, it was good. It was from food.com. You can go find the recipe over there. The maple butter cream part was the best.
I will be totally honest, the cake was good but more work than I like. I really like a simple cake mix topped with a really good frosting. The cakes didn't want to come out of the pan very good, I just don't have the time to fight with a cake so cake mixes are awesome and somewhat fool proof for me.
It didn't turn out so pretty, but it did taste good.
