Ingredients

How to make it

  • In a small saucepan, gently simmer butter just until it starts to change color (don’t let it burn – you just want to see the color change ever so slightly).
  • Remove pan from heat and stir in brown sugar and cream.
  • Return to heat and bring mixture to a boil; gently simmer for 1 minute.
  • Remove pan from heat again.
  • Stir in powdered sugar, beating until frosting is smooth and creamy.
  • This frosting begins to harden as it cools, so if this happens before you are done frosting, just stir in a bit of cream or milk until thin enough to spread again.
Gently boil for 1 minute before adding powdered sugar   Close

    Made this tonight to top a very popular cupcake from a board mate on another site. So good and just perfect for what I was looking for! Thanks, Krumkake. :) I took a few photos of the process, if you want them, give a holler.

    I hope that this is the frosting that is mentioned on the Banana Chiffon cake. Even if it isn't, this is the frosting that I'm chosing for that cake tonight. Another brilliant recipe, Krum! Here's hoping you're well and happy out there somewhere! Lassie, come home!
