This is an alternative to the classic recipe that calls for powdered sugar. My husband and I use it to frost fruit cocktail cake. Try it on applesauce cake, spice cake, banana cake, or carrot cake, too.
Original recipe makes 1 11×7 or 8×8 inch cake
1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
2 tablespoons light brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon almond extract
1 tablespoon honey
- Melt butter and allow to cool.
- In a large bowl, combine cream cheese, butter, brown sugar, vanilla and almond extract. Beat with an electric mixer. When mixture starts to stiffen, stop mixer and add honey.
- Continue to beat until light and fluffy. Do not over mix, or it will collapse.
- Spread immediately and store cake in refrigerator.
