Brownie Batter Frosting - A Guest Post by MiMi

     I had some bananas that were getting a bit soft.  My first thought was banana bread but then I decided I needed a dessert.  Carlee has made Di's Banana Cake several times so it must be a hit.  I decided to make that and change it a little by trying a new frosting.  I had just created a Brownie Batter Ice Cream recipe so I had some brownie mix left.  What a great way to top banana cake.  I like a thick fudgy frosting so that is what I made.  It is thick, rich and yummy.


Brownie Batter Frosting


1 cup brownie mix
1/2 cup cocoa 
1 cup butter, softened
1 T vanilla
1 T milk
3 cups powdered sugar
1 T hot water

  1. Place cocoa powder and brownie mix in bowl and whisk together.
  2. Add the butter and vanilla and mix well.
  3. Add milk and slowly add the powdered sugar while beating on medium speed.  Add the hot water and beat on medium for about a minute


  1. Well this is a sure-fire way to put any cake over the top! Brownie batter frosting?! Yum! Can't wait to try this :)

    1. I know, right?! It is so thick and fudgy and yummy!

  2. You had me at brownie, then you really had me at frosting. I would sit and eat this with a spoon. I think it needs me.

  3. Oh my gosh! This sounds amazing. Great reuse for the extra brownie batter mix.
