Creamless Caramel Icing

I use easily available ingredients for my caramel icing, melting 1/4 C butter and 1/2 C dark brown sugar with 3 T milk in heavy saucepan. Add 2 tsp vanilla essence. Then add around 1.5 C sifted icing sugar. Add more if you find it's not thick enough. Stir till smooth. :smile:

Evaporated milk should substitute well for cream.

I use evaporated milk often in place of cream when it doesn't have to be whipped. Even in ganache if I don't have cream.

I even recall I recipe I used to make when I was a kid for something like a grasshopper pie, where you did whip a can of evaporated milk. You refrigerated everything well first I think.

My mother often whipped evaporated milk. I think that was something that got started during the shortages and rationings of WWII.

I don't understand why rappers have to hunch over while they stomp around the stage hollering.  It hurts my back to watch them. On the other hand, I've been thinking that perhaps I should start a rap group here at the Old Folks' Home.  Most of us already walk like that.

I really ought to keep cream in the house though.

Yep. There are so many things that improve when the impulse strikes to add just a touch of cream.

And it's easy to keep around these days when that ultra pasturized stuff lasts in the fridge for what seems like decades.
