COCOA BUTTERCREAM


This one is a versatile buttercream. It calls for a raw egg, but at different times, I have substituted the egg with 1/3 cup of whipping cream or some sour cream. The one thing you have to keep in mind is always, always use salt free butter. Buttercream tastes pretty awful with salted butter.

1 cup of unsalted butter, softened
2-1/2 cups icing sugar, sifted
1 egg
1/3 cup cocoa, sifted

• Beat the butter with an electric beater until fluffy.
• Add the sifted icing sugar.
• Using a wooden spoon, combine the butter and the icing sugar.
• Then beat with an electric beater for 3 minutes.
• Add the egg and beat for 2 more minutes.
• Using a wooden spoon stir the sifted cocoa into the cream.
• Then beat with an electric beater until well combined.
