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).
- 1⁄2 cup butter
- 1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
- 1⁄4 cup milk
- 3 cups powdered sugar
- 1⁄2 teaspoon vanilla
- 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.
- 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.
- This makes enough frosting to generously cover one 9x13 cake with some leftovers or 12 large cupcakes. Delicious!
