A wonderful frosting I have used for years made in very little time with perfect results and 100% better than any canned, this frosting is so good you will find yourself eating a fair amount of it before even using it to frost with! --- choose the amount of cocoa powder you desire for either a light, medium or dark frosting, and make certain to sift the cocoa powder and the confectioners sugar before using for the recipe--- this frosting *freezes* very well so double the recipe and freeze one batch for next time --- *NOTE* for an ultra creamy fluffy milk chocolate frosting add in 1 to 1-1/2 cups thawed Cool Whip topping at the end of mixing the frosting and beat on low speed until blended ------- also see my recipe#80118 ---- recipe#282040 --- recipe#90142
I always use this when I decorate cakes and I get many, many compliments on the wonderful taste. It is not that usual shortening-and-sugar-bakery-icing taste. If I am not using it to decorate a cake with, I use my all butter variation: Recipe #261024.
This is similar to bakery frosting and so much better than any canned! --- for extra fluffy frosting use heavy cream and make certain to beat for at least 3-5 minutes and remember to sift the confectioners sugar before using. For flavor and color you can add 1-2 envelopes 3-grams each, Duncan Hines Frosting Creations Flavor Mix, any flavor desired.
Here's a nice alternative to pumpking pie at the end of a holiday meal! Your guests will ooh and ahh, but you'll laugh because this is a no cook recipe! Prep time does not include 2 hour chilling time. I've substituted Cool Whip for the regular whipping cream, and it's fine!
Easy and economical to make for use to make your own pies and tarts. Times given are when using a food processor, if doing by hand add another 5 minutes. Don't include chill time. If you have hot hands would advise using a food processor. You end up with enough for 2 tart cases (9") or for the top and bottom of a 9" pie. If using for a sweet dish add 2 teaspoons sugar after you rub in butter. Use as is for savoury dishes.
I have edited this to 8 serves for if used as 2 bottoms or a top and bottom it would equate to 8 serves, giving a truer nutritional panel. Still does not include sugar for sweet pastry. Please note referring to a 250ml metric cup for USA cups + 2 tablespoons.
This is a lush light frosting which keeps it's consistency for 1-2 days in the refrigerator and doesn't seem to sink into the cake as so many do. Simple and easy to make. A delicious topping for those special occasions when you want something special.
I don't like traditional cream cheese frosting, so my friend made this and used it to frost chocolate cupcakes when I went to her place for lunch. She's right, add chocolate and I'll devour anything! She gave me this recipe (it's originally from Diana's Desserts), and I thought I'd share it with all my fellow chocoholics. Makes 1 3/4 cups of frosting (she frosted 12 large cupcakes). Cooking time is the estimated time for melting chocolate.
This is a no bake cheesecake recipe from the book, The Recipe Hall of Fame Cookbook. Everyone at our house loves cheesecake! And this looks scrumptious. Preparation time does not include chilling time.
This is the icing for the Vanilla-Fudge Marble Cake recipe #45104. Don't have the golden syrup? Well if you must, you can try substituting it with 2 parts light corn syrup and 1 part molasses or equal parts of honey and light corn syrup.
You must try this! My family waits all year for me to make this for St. Pattie's Day. It's Oh So Rich and yummy. I use Bailey's because I think it's the best, but I imagine it would work with other Irish Creams as well.
Adapted from a French cookbook, I cannot believe how something this delicious can be so easy to make. And the results are truly magnificent. Decorate nicely, and you could swear this came from a big French Patisserie. By the way, the recipe says that the cake and the sauce both can be frozen for one month. The cake and sauce are unsuitable to microwave. MMM....When I made this me and my hubby finished it in one go, and he doesn't even like chocolate that much!
This recipe goes back over 20 years, I like the simplicity of this recipe and for a one bowl cupcake they are pretty darn good, 1-1/2 teaspoons almond extract may be used in place of the vanilla, using butter in place of shortening will alter the texture it is best to only use shortening --- if you don't have paper liners grease the tins generously or see my recipe#78579
