Recipe: Vanilla Buttercream Frosting

Posted Jan 17 2011 10:42pm

Looking for the perfect whipped frosting to top one of Wholesome Chow’s Allergy Friendly Decadent Baking Mixes ?  Here’s a simple, easy to make recipe courtesy of The Joy of Vegan Baking Cookbook.  A few delicious flavoring alternatives are listed below for your drooling pleasure.

Yields enough for one 9-inch cake
  • 1/2 cup non-hydrognated, non-dairy Butter, such as Earth Balance , at room temperature
  • 2 cups Confectioners’ Sugar, sifted
  • 1 1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 2 tbsp Non-dairy Milk, or more as needed
  • Food coloring, optional

With an electric hand mixer, cream the butter until smooth.  With the mixer on low speed, add the confectioners’ sugar, vanilla, milk, and food coloring (if using).  once all ingredients are relatively well combined, beat on high speed until the frosting is light and fluffy, 3 – 4 minutes.  Add 1 to 2 tbsp more milk if it is too dry.  Cover with plastic wrap to prevent drying until ready to use.  Store in a covered container in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.  Rewhip before using.

Additional flavoring ideas, add one to the above recipe:

  • 1 tsp Lemon Extract with 1/2 tsp Lemon Zest
  • 1 tsp Coffee Extract
  • 1 tsp Almond Extract
  • 1 tsp Orange Extract with 1/2 tsp Orange Zest
