Butter Cake with Brown Sugar Glaze

Butter Cake with Brown Sugar Glaze

This Butter Cake with Brown Sugar Glaze is out of this world delicious! I love serving it whenever we have guests over. The brown sugar glaze hardens up and creates this perfect crystallized, slightly crunchy texture on top of the cake. If you love a soft, moist crumb, this cake is for you!
