My "back porch" is my kitchen, my favorite room in the house. Come on in, the coffee is fresh, and I just made a pitcher of sweet tea. The cookies will be out in a minute. I have over 40 years of recipes to share with you, along with my opinion on everything. Oh my, you are right, it is cocktail time. What can I get you? Of course I can make you a Mint Julep! Stop by anytime, something is always cooking, and the back door is never locked.

Bon Appetit, Y'all

My Favorite Caramel Frosting

It's my favorite because this recipe actually makes enough to frost a large cake, it's delish, and it's one of the few Caramel Frosting I can make. I use this on My Favorite Old-Fashioned Blackberry Jam Cake.

My Favorite Caramel Frosting
3 3/4 cups
print recipe

1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter
2 cups firmly packed dark brown sugar
1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons whipping cream
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
3 3/4 cups powdered sugar

1. Melt butter in a 3-quart, saucepan over medium heat. Add brown sugar; bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Stir in whipping cream and vanilla; bring to a boil. Remove from heat, and let cool 1 hour. Transfer frosting to a bowl.

2. Sift powdered sugar into frosting. Beat at high speed with an electric mixer until creamy and spreading consistency.
