Brown Butter Frosting

Brown Butter Frosting

Browned butter is one of my favorite little secrets. Browned butter can be used in many different recipes in place of regular butter for a much more in depth flavor, and a little nuttiness.  My sister told me about a friend of hers that makes browned butter frosting.  I had never heard of it, and I can't believe I never thought of it!  We made our own for some cupcakes she was bringing to work and it is so good! Think caramel frosting..but not  as sticky, a little less sweet than caramel, but just as great.  This just might be my new go-to frosting! What types of recipes do you like to use browned butter in? 


Brown Butter Frosting Recipe:

1 stick of butter

1 lb. powdered sugar (about 4 cups)

1 tea. vanilla

1/2 tea. salt

2-4 Tb. milk


Start by browning 1 stick (1/2 cup) of butter. Here's my Browned Butter How To.

In the bowl of a mixer, measure out 1 lb. of powdered sugar and salt.  Pour in browned butter and mix until combined.  Add milk 1 Tb. at a time to thin out and get rid of the lumps.  Mix in milk until it reaches the consistency you desire.  Smother generously over anything!
