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.
