This brown sugar-flavored frosting is wonderful. It goes well on a banana or spice cake.
1/2 cup butter
1 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup milk
1 3/4 to 2 cups powdered sugar
Melt butter in saucepan. Stir in brown sugar. Bring to a boil and cook for 2 minutes. Stir in milk. Bring to a boil again, stirring constantly. Take off heat and cool to lukewarm. Gradually stir in powdered sugar until frosting reaches desired consistency. Recipe makes enough frosting for a 13 x 9-inch cake or 2 9-inch rounds.
