I have decided to share with everyone my recipe for a “foolproof” caramel frosting. My Grandma Barbra and I have been using this recipe for years, and she originally got it from her friend and neighbor, Mitzi.
Foolproof Caramel Frosting
1 (4 oz.) stick salted butter
1 cup light brown sugar, lightly packed
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup whole white milk
1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
4 cups powdered sugar
Melt the salted stick of butter with the light brown sugar and pinch of salt in a large pot over medium heat and allow to cook for two minutes.
Add the whole white milk and stir until it comes to a boil. Once the mixture comes to a boil, off the heat, add the tablespoon of pure vanilla extract and all four cups of powdered sugar. Using a wire whisk, beat until everything is smooth and combined, and no lumps are visible.
Pour immediately on cake and allow to sit until it comes to room temperature.
