Are you tired of buying frosting in a can?
Does the thought of making butter cream frosting again just get your panties in a wad?
Do you poop out at parties?
Are you unpopular?
The answer to all your woes is right here...
No, it's not vitameatavegamin.
It's brown sugar frosting.
Here are your ingredients- brown sugar, butter, vanilla and cream.
You'll need a 2 quart saucepan and a candy thermometer.
Take a quarter cup of butter.
Two cups of brown sugar.
I don't know why my butter in the background looks fluorescent.
One cup of unwhipped whipping cream.
On medium heat, stir until you reach a rolling boil.
Or, according to my mother's recipe, find a nice medium head and stir.
I laughed out loud, by myself in my kitchen when I read this.
Get out your handy, dandy candy thermometer (you will need one).
Boil until it reaches 240 degrees or soft ball.
It will look like this for a while.
When it finally reaches soft ball,
stir in a teaspoon of vanilla.
Get out your mixer and mix until it cools enough to form soft peaks.
Or cool swirly things like this.
Then spread over a devil's food cake.
Here is the recipe.
Brown Sugar Frosting
2 cups brown sugar
1 cup whipping cream
1/4 cup butter
1 tsp vanilla
In 2 qt. saucepan, heat butter, brown sugar and cream on medium heat. Stir until it reaches a rolling boil. Remove from heat when the candy thermometer reads 240 degrees (soft ball stage). Add vanilla and stir quickly so it does not burn. With a mixer, mix until frosting consistency or until it holds together and peaks form. Frost a cooled devil's food cake quickly. This will frost one 9X13 cake.
Join all the happy, peppy people...
