To Make the Penuche Frosting:
In a medium-sized saucepan, combine butter and brown sugar. Bring to a boil. Continue to cook and stir for one minute or until thickened. Cool for 15 minutes.
Add hot milk and beat until smooth with a wooden spoon. Beat in enough powdered sugar to allow for creamy spreading. Spread onto cooled cake. Serves 15-18.
