Brown Sugar Frosting

Source: Brown Sugar Frosting Recipe at Cupcake Project web site

1/2 cup unsalted butter
1 cup brown sugar, packed
1/4 cup milk
2 cup sifted confectioners' sugar

  1. In a saucepan, melt butter.
  2. Add the brown sugar.
  3. Bring to a boil, lower heat to medium low, and continue to boil for 2 minutes, stirring constantly.
  4. Add the milk and return to a boil, stirring constantly.
  5. Remove from heat and cool to lukewarm.
  6. Gradually add sifted confectioners' sugar. (I would highly recommend sifting the confectioners' sugar. It's such a pain to sift, but it ensures that the frosting will be extra smooth.)
  7. Beat until thick enough to spread. If too thick, add a little hot water.
