caramel Icing
1 1/3cups Brown Sugar
1 Tablespoon flour
1/4 Cup butter (plus 2 tablespoons for later)
1/3 Cup Milk
1 teaspoon vanilla

in a small saucepan mix together all ingredients except the vanilla and the extra 3 tablespoons of butter heat over medium and bring to a boil stirring frequently to prevent burning let the mixture boil for a good one minute -I actually use a candy thermometer and let it reach 230 degrees but if you don’t have one just make sure you boil it for a good solid minute- butterscotch cake caramel Icing

take off the fire and add in the vanilla and the 3 tablespoons butter cool the mixture occasionally giving it a vigorous stir until it is still warm -but not hot- and has thickened enough to spread spread it over the cake moving fairly quickly because it will set as it cools It will be a thin coating not a thick layer let it set completely before cutting into the cake
