Penuche Icing...

I used to get frustrated when preparing my husband's birthday cake. Whenever I asked him: "What kind of cake would you like for your birthday?", and I was thinking of all those nice themes to create a master piece... But, he would invariably answer: "Angel food cake with penuche icing..."
So, no room for cake decorating with this kind of cake, and it was also hard to come up with a cake like those his mom used to make for him for his birthday...not to mention to find a recipe for this penuche icing that I had never heard of before...
But with the years, I have been feeling more and more at home with this cake, and I came to love this penuche icing, sweet and rich, kind of fudge...

Penuche Icing

1/2 cup of butter

1 cup brown sugar

1/4 cup milk

1 cup icing sugar

Melt butter in saucepan: stir in brown sugar. Cook and stir till bubbly. Remove from heat. Add milk, and beat until smooth. Add icing sugar, beat by hand until spreading consistency. Immediately cover Angel Food cake with it... Enjoy!
