Caramel Buttercream Frosting

This frosting is amazing and a great one for, say, a tasty banana cake or even a Devil's Food cake. Rich and super satisfying. The recipe is based on one I found on another site.
- Ready In:
- 1⁄2 cup butter, softened
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 1⁄4 cup milk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 3 1⁄2 cups sifted powdered sugar
- In a large saucepan, melt butter and add brown sugar. Bring this mixture to a boil, stirring frequently. Boil and stir for 1 minute until thickened. Remove from heat and add milk. Beat with wire whisk until smooth. Add vanilla and beat again. Then add enough powdered sugar until of desired spreading consistency; the frosting should be POURABLE. POUR frosting over cake from pan and spread to cover. Frosting cools VERY QUICKLY.
- -- also a great frosting for cookies
- Refrigerate after frosting for best texture.

Great taste, very rich caramel flavor. Only negative, I would NOT call it a buttercream frosting, it's more of a thick creamy icing, it is not a light fluffy pipeable cream, to achieve that next time I will make the start of a basic buttercream and whip in the butter/sugar aka caramel as I saw in a few other recipes. Recipe was easy to follow and results were exactly as expected per the instructions, I iced a sheet pan of brownies and then quickly sprinkled coarse sea salt and mini chocolate chips on top and the result was a sweet, salty, caramel/chocolate dream. Summation- Fantastic and delicious creamy caramel icing recipe!Reply
