The other day I mentioned the Butter cake with Brown Sugar Icing.
The butter cake was from a mix, so any butter cake would do- This icing recipe though goes well with a lot of different types of cakes and such, not just Butter- i.e. Applesauce Cake, Prune Cake, Carrot Cake- etc.
Brown Sugar Icing
1 stick of butter
1 Cup packed Brown Sugar
1/4 Cup Milk
2 Cups Powdered Sugar
1 teaspoon Vanilla
Melt butter in saucepan
Add Brown Sugar and boil for 2 minutes
Stir in milk and bring back to boil
Remove from heat and cool until lukewarm
Beat in Powdered Sugar and Vanilla
Poke holes in cake and drizzle over
You may wish to refrigerate any uneaten cake so it does not sour.
