Quick Caramel Icing


Another easy icing, similar in technique to my peanut butter icing, this caramel icing is fantastic paired with Easy Banana Cake, or would be great to top my Basic 1-2-3-4 Yellow Cake.

As always, full recipe text with measurements and instructions, as well as a printable document, are a little bit further down the page. Just swipe or scroll past the step by step pictures below.

Recipe: Quick Caramel Icing

©From the Kitchen of Deep South Dish
Prep time: 10 min
Cook time: 1 hour 30 min

Total time: 1 hour 40 min
Yield: About 4 to 6 servings

Ingredients
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) pure unsalted butter
  • 1 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup half and half
  • 2 cups sifted powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
Instructions

In a heavy bottomed saucepan, combine the butter and brown sugar and cook over a slightly higher than medium fire, until mixture begins to boil. This will take anywhere from 2 to 4 minutes depending on your stove. Once it begins to boil, slowly whisk in the half and half until well blended. Bring back just to a boil, turn the burner to low, remove the saucepan from the heat, add the powdered sugar and vanilla and blend. Return the saucepan to the burner and beat with a wooden spoon until smooth. Icing will get stiff quickly so you'll need to immediately pour over cake and allow it to set.
