This came from my aunt who loves cake. It is a little different from a buttercream frosing as it has cream cheese in it, but it is delicious.
- 1⁄4 cup soft butter
- 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese
- 3 ounces unsweetened chocolate squares (melted)
- 3 cups sifted confectioners' sugar
- 1⁄4-1⁄3 cup cream
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 dash salt
- Melt the chocolate.
- Mix all of the ingredients in a bowl, saving the cream to add slowly as it may not need all of the 1/3 cup, but maybe it will.
- Beat till smooth and fluffy.
- Frost your cake.
I made this recipe on 12/08/09 to frost Recipe#303163. Reading through this recipe, I was a bit confused on the powdered sugar. Should it be measured first then sifted, or should it be sifted then measured ? So, I measured then sifted. I also wasn't sure if the cream cheese should be softened or not. So, I softened it at room temp. for about 30 minutes. Even before adding the liquid, it was so runny that I had to add more sugar to get thick enough to spread. My SO seemed to like it, but to me it was just o.k. Thanks for posting.
AWESOME!!! We had lost my MIL's cream cheese frosting recipe, so I came looking for a similar one. My hubby says this is almost identical to hers!! Yum!! Thanks so much for sharing! Will definitely make again and again!! :O)
I used this frosting for my DD's birthday cake and the kids ate the cake like crazy! I will be using this when I make cakes often!
