Caramel Frosting V


This is my mother-in-laws recipe. She was a fantastic country cook!

3 cups


  • 1 pound light brown sugar

  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream

  • ½ teaspoon baking soda

  • ½ cup butter

  • ¼ cup chopped pecans


  1. In a medium, heavy saucepan, bring the brown sugar and cream to a rolling boil; boil 1 minute. Add baking soda; boil 1 more minute. Remove from heat. Add butter, but do not stir yet. Let the mixture cool.

  2. Beat well. Stir in pecans if desired.
