Caramel Frosting

Caramel FrostingAn easy-to-make, rich and creamy caramel frosting that pairs especially well with the flavors of banana, spice and yellow cakes.

Recipe Ingredients:

1 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
1/3 cup milk

Cooking Directions:

  1. Place the brown sugar, butter and milk in a small saucepan and bring to a boil over medium heat; boil for 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from heat; set aside to allow mixture to cool to room temperature.
  2. Once mixture has cooled, stir first then add the powdered sugar and stir just until combined, then beat with an electric mixer (or vigorously with a wooden spoon) until frosting is creamy and of spreadable consistency. If frosting is too thick, add a teaspoon or more of milk until desired consistency is reached.
  3. Immediately use frosting as desired.
