Grandma Em's Spice Cake Frosting

**This dreamy panoche frosting is another favorite recipe from Jules. This was her Grandma Emma Rae Ashton's signature dessert, and I get rave reviews every time I serve it.

1/2 cup butter
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup milk
1 3/4- 2 cups powdered sugar

Melt butter & add brown sugar in medium saucepan. Boil over medium heat for two minutes, stirring constantly. Add milk and stir until mixture returns to a full boil. Cool to lukewarm. Add powdered sugar gradually until frosting is desired consistency. If frosting becomes too stiff, add a few drops of milk to thin.

Pour or spread over spice cake (baked according to package directions and cooled) while frosting is still fresh.
