Caramel Frosting for Angel Food Cake

“This is my family's traditional angel food cake frosting. It is so very rich that it may be complete overkill on a sweeter, heavier cake. My grandmother made many a birthday cake using this recipe. In fact, the photograph that I have included is from my older brother's 2nd birthday in March 1961!”

Directions

  1. Melt the butter in a saucepan and then add the brown sugar.
  2. Boil and stir for at least one minute.
  3. Take the saucepan off the heat and add the milk.
  4. With a hand mixer beat in the powdered sugar, one cup at a time until the spreading consistency is right for you.
  5. It should not be a very thick consistency for angel food cake, because it will harden as it cools.
