I made a batch of this and frosted a entire three layer red velvet cake. Plus this frosting is so easy to make, the only thing is it will take a bit of time and patience. Totally it took me a good 45 mins to make this frosting. But it is completely worth the time. I hope you will give this a try and let me know how it turns out for you.
Cooking Time : 5 mins
Makes : 600 grams of frosting
Recipe Source: thetoughcookie
All Purpose Flour / Maida – 4.5 tblspn
Milk – 1 cup /240 ml
Granulated Sugar – 1 cup / 200 grams
Unsalted Butter – 200 grams (Soft)
Vanilla Essence – 1 tsp
Take flour, sugar, milk in a sauce pan. Mix well so no lumps are formed. Put it on heat and cook till it is thick. Keep mixing.
Now add in vanilla essence and mix well.
Pour this mix in a large mixing bowl and use a electric beater to beat this up till it gets cold. I kept on beating it now and then till it gets cold.
Once the mix is cold, add in butter 1 tblspn at a time and keep on beating. You should add the next tblspn only when the first added butter is creamed well.
Once all the butter is added up, you will be ended up with a creamy creamy frosting.
Once it reaches that stage, put the bowl in the fridge for 10 to 15 so it can firm up a little or you can use it right away.
1)You have to start adding the butter only when the mix gets cold. or else the butter will melt and you wont be getting fluffy buttercream.
2)You can store this buttercream in fridge for 2 to 3 days. Bring back to room temp before using.
