Buttercream recipe


Here is a simple buttercream recipe that I use in many of my cakes. It is very fluffy, easy to work with and doubles very well.  It is such a simple recipe that can be modified easily. Add melted chocolate and coco and you get chocolate buttercream. Instead of vanilla extract, change it for almond or any other flavour. 
This recipe is my go to. 
Hope you enjoy as much as I do.
Ingredients:
1 ¼ cups unsalted butter, room temperature
4 cups icing sugar or confectioners sugar
½ tsp or more good quality vanilla extract

Step 1 


Beat the butter until light and fluffy.
Step 2
Gradually add 1 cup at the time of icing sugar. Add your vanilla extract or any other extract that you want. Beat on high for 5 minutes until it has double in size and it is nice and silky with no sugar grains.
Tips to make your buttercream less yellow:
1) Use clear vanilla extract
2) Over beat your buttercream
3) You can also use white food coloring


Yield: 4 cups

    1. Не знаю точно. По-моему чашка - это 250 грамм. Я как-то сталкивалась с американскими рецептами. Там всё измеряется в чашках. И было пояснение. Но пудра сахарная по объёму, наверное.

    1. No you can not
      use margarine. It has less fat and more water then butter. It will not hold it shape.
