Buttercream Frosting Recipe
Makes about 1 cup frosting/icing.
Preparation time: about 10 minutes
We use a 20ml tablespoon and 250ml measuring cup for all of our recipes.
75g butter, softened (we use salted butter)
1/4 tsp (1.25ml) vanilla extract
145g (1 cup) icing sugar, sifted
1 tablespoon (20g) cream (35-40 percent fat)
Using an electric mixer or electric hand-held beaters, beat butter and vanilla in a medium bowl until creamy.
Add the icing sugar in three batches, beating for about one minute after each addition, and stopping the machine a couple of times to scrape down the side and base of the bowl.
Add the cream and beat until completely incorporated.
