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. PUMPKIN BANANA NUT BREAD W/CRM CHSE CARAMEL FROSTING.

How to Make Cream Cheese Caramel Frosting

Step-by-Step

  • 1Combine all of the frosting ingredients into a large bowl. Then on low speed gradually blend ingredients together till creamy.
  • 2If 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.
  • 3Frost cake or muffins as desired. Refrigerate or freeze any left overs. If making a bundt cake, you may want to cut recipe in half.
  • 4After 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.
