Michele’s Favorite Frosting

Oh do  I have fond memories of Mom making this frosting for cakes.  There would be a nice thick layer of frosting on her cakes.  I would then peel the frosting off the cake and eat the cake first, saving the delicious frosting for last.  This works with both white and chocolate cake.

Enjoy!

Butter Icing

Ingredients:

1/4 cup butter

1 cup brown sugar

grain of salt

5 tablespoons milk

2 1/4 – 2 1/2 cups powdered sugar

(I think there should be some vanilla in this but I did not include it when I typed the recipe card “A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far, away.”)

Directions:

Melt butter in saucepan.

Add brown sugar & salt.

Cook over low heat 2 minutes, stirring constantly.

Add milk and stir until boiling.

Take off stove and cool.

Add powdered sugar a little bit at a time.

Frost cake.

Eat cake!
