Panocha Frosting

This creamy caramel frosting is a great match for apple or spice cake.

  • 6 tablespoons Crisco® shortening or canola oil
  • 6 tablespoons milk
  • 1-1/2 cups firmly packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  1. Over low heat, melt Crisco and sugar in saucepan. Stir in milk, brown sugar and salt. Bring mixture to boil over medium heat, and boil for 1 minute. Remove from heat.
  2. Beat by hand or with electric mixer until mixture is lukewarm. Add vanilla.

    Continue beating until frosting is creamy and thick enough to spread.
  3. If it becomes too thick to spread, add a teaspoon of milk and mix well. Makes enough to frost a two-layer cake.
