Heat oven to 350 degrees. Beat sugars, butter, vanilla, and eggs in a large bowl with electric mixer on medium speed, or mix with a wooden spoon. Beat until light and fluffy. Stir in flour, baking powder, and salt. Spread in an ungreased 13x9-inch baking dish. Bake 20-23 minutes or until golden brown and a wooden toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool completely, about 45 minutes. Frost with Brown Sugar Frosting. Immediately sprinkle with pecans. Cut into 6 rows by 6 rows.

To make frosting, melt butter in a 2 quart saucepan over very low heat. Stir in brown sugar. Cook over low heat 2 minutes. Stir constantly. Stir in milk. Cook until mixture comes to a full rolling boil. Remove from heat. Gradually stir in powdered sugar and vanilla. Mixing well using a wooden spoon after each addition. Mix until smooth and spreadable. If necessary, add more milk, a few drops at a time.
