Directions:
Preheat over to 350. Generously grease and flour 2 9" round cake pans.

In a medium sized bowl, mix flour, baking soda and salt.

In a large bowl, cream butter. Gradually add sugar and vanilla, beating until mixture is fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add flour mixture alternately with buttermilk. Divide batter evenly between prepared pans. Bake in preheated oven about 30-35 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted into center comes out clean.

Cool in pans on a wire rack 10 minutes. Remove from pans; cool completely.

Frosting:
In a medium sized saucepan, melt margarine. Stir in brown sugar and milk. Bring to a boil and simmer 5 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Add vanilla. Gradually beat in powdered sugar until frosting reaches spreading consistency. Use while still warm; Cooled frosting is stiff and hard to spread.

Spread about 1/3 of frosting between layers. Frost sides and top of cake with remaining frosting.

Another of Dad's favorites. The caramel icing could be a bit tricky. One of the few things I remember Mom having to work with to perfect it!
