Recipe for Cooked Frosting

I remember an aunt making a wonderful caramel frosting that was cooked and then poured over the cake. It dried smooth and would even crack when you cut through it. Does anyone out there have the recipe?

This delicious caramel glaze is the perfect topping for a spice cake,

or use it to finish just about any Bundt cake.

4 tablespoons butter

1/4 cup light brown sugar, packed

1/4 cup granulated sugar

1/2 cup heavy whipping cream

In a saucepan over medium-low heat, melt the butter. Stir in sugars.

Cook the butter and sugar mixture, stirring, for 1 minute or until bubbly.

Stir in the heavy cream. Bring to a boil. Cook the mixture,

stirring constantly, for 2 minutes.

Remove from heat and cool slightly.

Spoon the caramel glaze over a completely cooled cake.

I used to have a recipe for cooked frosting. The base of flour and milk was cooked to a thick paste. As this cooled, equal parts of butter and shortening along with some sugar, a bit of vanilla, and a dash of salt was whipped until light and fluffy. Then the cooled paste was folded in. It was terrific because it was not too sweet, could be used to decorate cakes, and was very smooth. Thank you!

Recipe for Cooked Frosting

7 minute frosting. (It's so good you want to eat it with a spoon!)

  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar or 1 tablespoon white corn syrup
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract

Place sugar, cream of tartar or corn syrup, salt, water, and egg whites in the top of a double boiler. Beat with a handheld electric mixer for 1 minute. Place pan over boiling water, being sure that boiling water does not touch the bottom of the top pan. (If this happens, it could cause your frosting to become grainy.) Beat constantly on high speed with electric mixer for 7 minutes. Beat in vanilla.
