Caramel Butter Nut Icing

Bryson Hatfield


I got this recipe out of my great-grandmother's recipe box.

It come off the back of a box of Duncan Hines Caramel Cake mix, I guess back before they made canned frosting, LOL.

pinch tips: How to Fold Ingredients




1 c
light brown sugar
1/4 c
chopped pecans
1/3 c
1/2 c
butter or margarine
2 c
confectioners' sugar, sift if needed

Directions Step-By-Step

In a saucepan, combine the brown sugar, butter and milk. Boil and stir for 2 minutes. Cool 30 minutes. Gradually add confectioners sugar; mix until smooth. Add more sugar to thicken or milk to thin frosting. This will make enough to frost 2 (8 or 9 inch) cake layers, a 13 x 9 inch cake or cupcakes. Vanilla flavoring can be added, if desired.
