This recipe comes from the writers of my all-time favorite cookbook, Veganomicon. It's everything you want in a frosting: fluffy, creamy, sweet (just rightly), and substantial enough that it stays put. Delicious on it's own and a great base to transform into other flavors as it suits you. I whipped it up in a food processor, as suggested in a review on the Post Punk Kitchen website, but I'll include here both sets of instructions, in case you've got a handy dandy electric mixer at your disposal. This version is slightly adapted from the original.
My Private Note
Units: US | Metric
- 1Food Processor Instructions:.
- 2Pulse the margarine in a food processor, scraping down the sides as needed.
- 3Add the soymilk and vanilla extract and pulse a few more times. Do not worry if it's not totally blended yet.
- 4Add the powdered sugar in three or so portions. Add one third and blend. Add another third and blend. Add the last bit and whirl it until fully incorporated and the frosting is smooth and fluffy.
- 5Add vanilla extract and whirl it around another few seconds.
- 6Spread on cakes, cupcakes, cookies, ritz crackers, whatever suits your fancy!
- 7Mixer Instructions, more or less as posted on the Post Punk Kitchen website:.
- 8Melt the margarine. I put it in a small bowl and microwave it, then use a plastic spatula to get it all out into the metal bowl.
- 9Add powdered sugar and soymilk, then beat on medium for about a minute, or until it's a good consistency for spreading.
- 10Stir in extracts and frost away!
- 11ALSO suggested:
- 12The original recipe is for chocolate frosting - add 2/3 cup cocoa powder before adding sugar in either form of preparation, and add 1 1/2 tsp almond extract with the vanilla.
- 13This would also be lovely with a little citrus zest - add orange or lemon zest with the extracts.
