I created this special frosting to compliment my Pumpkin Banana Nut Bread, & I was so impressed with the results that I thought I would share it in a separate post, in case you are looking for an easy & great tasting caramel frosting. The cream Cheese adds great flavor & the rich caramel enhances the blending of all the flavors combined. It adds a rich caramel color. You can add chopped nuts to this frosting if you like to give it extra crunch. I topped mine with Heath Bar Crunch. The recipe is posted here if you would like to try it.

Ingredients For cream cheese caramel frosting

    powdered sugar
  • 2 stick

How To Make cream cheese caramel frosting

  • 1
    Combine all of the frosting ingredients into a large bowl. Then on low speed gradually blend ingredients together till creamy.
  • 2
    If mixture is too thick you can thin it with a little milk, adding 1 tablespoon at a time till it reaches the consistency you prefer.
  • 3
    Frost cake or muffins as desired. Refrigerate or freeze any left overs. If making a bundt cake, you may want to cut recipe in half.
  • This is the change I made to the original recipe. I posted this cake that I frosted with the left over frosting. Whenever I see changes that were made to a recipe, I want to know what they were, because there is no distinction between the new & the old.
    After frosting the Banana Bread Bundt cake, I stored the remainder of the frosting in the fridge, and about a week later I frosted this double layer cake with the left over frosting. It worked out great.
