Caramel Frosting

This recipe was partly adapted from one of Grandma Donna’s recipes along with some help from Two Sisters Crafting. I used this frosting on Grandma’s fluffy chocolate cake and it was a delicious combination.


  • 1 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1/2 cup Earth Balance, cubed
  • 1/4 cup soy milk
  • 2-2 1/2 cups powdered sugar

Yield:  Frosting for a 2 layer 9” cake

In large saucepan, combine the brown sugar, Earth balance and soy milk. Cook and stir over a low heat until the brown sugar is dissolved.

Increase the heat to medium. Do not stir. Cook for 3-6 minutes until either bubbles form in the center of the pan or the mixture turns amber. Remove from the heat and transfer the caramel mixture to a small bowl. Cool to room temperature.

Add caramel mixture to a mixer. Gradually mix in powdered sugar until combined, creamy and the correct consistency.
