Browned Butter Frosting

Browned Butter Frosting

Ingredients

  1. 1 stick Challenge Unsalted Butter
  2. 2 cups confectioners (powdered) sugar
  3. ¼ cup light cream (or half & half)
  4. 1 teaspoon vanilla

Directions

  1. Step 1

    Melt and heat the butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat until it is golden brown in color (be careful not to burn), about 5 minutes.

  2. Step 2

    Turn heat to low. Add and whisk in powdered sugar and cream until well blended and sugar is dissolved.

  3. Step 3

    Remove pan from the heat; add vanilla and stir mixture for about three minutes.

  4. Step 4

    Place the frosting in the refrigerator for about 10 minutes until the frosting is cool and thick. If frosting thickens too much, add another Tablespoon cream.

Note: This recipe will yield enough for a 2 layer 9-inch cake.
