Windy City dinner fairy

Combine melted butter, buttermilk, molasses, sugar and egg. Add vanilla, spices, baking soda and powder and salt. Mix well. Add flour and mix until you can’t see any flour

Prepare an 8×8 square pan with parchment paper, spraying the sides not covered with cooking spray. Pour batter into prepared baking pan. 

Bake until an inserted toothpick comes out clean. Let the cake cool in the pan for 10 minutes before transferring to a wire rack for frosting.

Combine sifted powdered sugar, browned butter, softened butter milk, and vanilla using the paddle attachment on the stand mixer. 

I used a Wilton 1M and 2A and Ateco 849 for the piping on this cake.
