This frosting tastes exactly like Brown Sugar Fudge (we call it Penuche around here). It is a fantastic topping for Chocolate, Spice or Banana Cake) and is easy to make and spread (it does harden a bit on standing though). Really delicious (especially if you make sure and use REAL butter....margarine just doesn't create the same taste).


  1. In medium saucepan, melt butter and add brown sugar. Cook over low heat for 2 minutes stirring constantly. Add milk, continue cooking until mixture comes to a rolling boil. Remove from heat.
  2. Beat in icing sugar in 3 additions making sure to combine thoroughly after each addition. Add vanilla and if required add enough milk to make a nice spreadable consistency.
  3. This makes enough frosting to generously cover one 9x13 cake with some leftovers or 12 large cupcakes. Delicious!
