What the Hell?

The most amazing buttercream frosting EVER! It’s crack. Once you’ve had this, you won’t want any other buttercream. You’ll crave it. You’ll NEED it. It will haunt your damn dreams. It takes a little bit of extra time, but it’s so worth it! Super creamy, not too sweet and makes a ton. The best part is you can make it ahead and freeze it! Thaw in your fridge and give it a good whip before frosting your cake. Sweet, creamy bliss I tell you!

What the hell should I drink?

I’m gonna go with a White Russian on this one. The Dude Abides.

What the hell should I listen to?

Sugar Sugar by The Archies. Sweet!

Recipe type: Dessert
Serves: a three layer cake
Ingredients
Cooked base
  • 2 C. whole milk, room temperature
  • 6 Tbls. unbleached, all-purpose flour
  • ¼ tsp. salt
Buttercream
  • 1 lb. unsalted butter, softened
  • 2 C. granulated sugar
  • 1 Tbls. vanilla
  • 2 Tbls. meringue powder
Instructions
Cooked Base
  1. In a medium pot, whisk together the milk, flour and salt.
  2. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly until mixture comes to a boil and becomes very thick.
  3. Scrape mixture into a large, shallow dish. Immediately cover surface with waxed paper. Make sure the waxed paper is touching the surface of the mixture. You don't want a skin to form.
  4. Set mixture aside and allow to come to room temperature. Once it's room temperature, place in refrigerator to chill.
Buttercream
  1. When you place the milk and flour mixture in the refrigerator, start the buttercream.
  2. In a large bowl, whip the butter with an electric mixer. You want to really whip it, at least 10 minutes. It should be noticeably lighter in color and very, very creamy.
  3. Gradually add in the sugar and meringue powder. Whip very well between sugar additions.
  4. When all the sugar and meringue powder have been added, add vanilla. Whip well.
  5. Gradually, add in the chilled milk and flour mixture. Whip well between additions.
  6. The frosting will be noticeably lighter in color and very, very fluffy. Continue whipping for an additional 5 minutes.
  7. NOTE: The extra whipping will keep the frosting from separating and maintain it's consistent, creamy texture.
