This creamy, delicious maple brown sugar buttercream tastes a little bit like cookie dough and a little bit like pancakes for breakfast… it’s perfection on chocolate cake, chocolate chip cake or even apple or carrot cakes!



1 cup (2 sticks) of salted butter, softened

1/2 cup of light brown sugar

1/4 cup all-purpose flour

4 cups of powdered sugar

2 tsp. vanilla extract

2 Tbsp pure maple syrup

12 Tbsp milk, as needed


Cream the butter and brown sugar together until light and fluffy.  Add in the flour, powdered sugar, vanilla extract, and maple syrup.  Mix until well combined.  Add milk as needed to get a good consistency for spreading & piping!
