brown butter frosting

Nutty brown butter pairs beautifully with sweet powdered sugar in this easy and delicious brown butter frosting.

Add butter to a saucepan over medium heat. Cook, stirring frequently, until deeply golden and smelling nutty.


Transfer the brown butter to a bowl. Let cool at room temperature until solid but still soft.


Use a mixer to beat together the brown butter, powdered sugar, a pinch of salt, and vanilla.


Add milk and mix on medium-high for 5 minutes, until the frosting is very fluffy and smooth. Use as desired.
