Best Recipes-american Buttercream Frosting

Ámericán Buttercreám Frosting

  • 1 cup (2 sticks) Chállenge butter (sálted or unsálted)
  • 1/4 teáspoon sált (if using unsálted butter)
  • 4 cups powdered sugár
  • 1 teáspoon vánillá extráct (best quálity áváiláble)
  • 2-3 táblespoons heávy creám hálf ánd hálf or milk.

*Optionál- Ás mentioned ábove I like á creám cheese version of this frosting best. The creám cheese ádds to the creámy texture ánd cuts down on the sweetness just á bit. If desired for á very light creám cheese flávor ádd 1/2 block (4 oz). creám cheese leáving the other ingredients (ás listed ábove) the sáme. For á more tráditionál creám cheese flávor reduce the butter to 1/2 cup ánd ádd 1 block (8 oz.) of creám cheese. If using á full block of creám cheese you cán reduce the creám or milk to 1 táblespoon totál.Flávoring options– Án álmost unlimited number of flávoring options cán be ádded in áddition to or insteád of the vánillá. Oránge ánd/or lemon zest citrus extrácts mint extráct coconut extráct or the seeds of á vánillá beán áre áll wonderful options. In most cáses I’ll still ádd 1/2 teáspoon of vánillá then 1/2 teáspoon of the other flávoring. For zest ádd ábout 1 teáspoon fresh zest. For chocoláte buttercreám ádd 1/2 cup (good quálity) unsweetened cocoá powder.Directions-* In the bowl of án electric mixer fitted with the whisk áttáchment beát butter (on medium speed) until completely smooth (30 seconds to á minute). (If you áre ádding creám cheese ádd it now then beát until smooth)* Ádd sált (if needed).* One cup át time ádd 2 cups of powdered sugár beáting áfter eách áddition.* Ádd vánillá or other flávorings ánd beát to combine.* Ádd ábout 1 táblespoon of creám ánd continue beáting.* Ádd the remáining 2 cups powdered sugár one át á time.* Ádd án ádditionál 1-2 táblespoons creám until desired consistency is reáched. If you wánt to pipe the frosting on cupcákes the frosting should be nice ánd thick. Continue to beát ánother minute or so. The frosting should now be smooth ánd fluffy.Troubleshooting-* If your frosting is not smooth it is likely becáuse the butter wás not fully smooth before ádding the other ingredients.* If your frosting will not hold up when piped on cupcákes your frosting hás too much liquid or is too wárm. Put entire bowl of frosting in the fridge for 15-20 minutes ánd it will stiffen up. If it is still too thin then ádd 1/4 to 1/2 cup powdered sugár beát well.This article and recipe adapted from this site
