Awesome recipe! It reminds me of what my grandma used to make. I put it on yellow cake. It disappeared.

What a wonderful recipe! We also made a caramel sauce with it by not adding the powdered sugar.

grandma2969, this is an excellent frosting. I had this at a friend's house. She made a vanilla cake, frosted it with Brown Sugar Frosting and served it fresh sliced peaches. This recipe is in my permanent recipe collection. Thank you for sharing a frosting recipe that is great on virtually any cake.
