DIRECTIONS

  • For the coffee: I just use a bit of instant and brew it about double or triple strength.
  • For best results, pre-measure the ingredients. You can pour the vanilla in with the coffee.
  • Place the vegan butter sub in a med-large mixing bowl; set hand mixer on low speed and beat till 'fluffy' (whippy is more like the right word here).
  • Gradually add the powdered sugar, stopping the mixer to scrape down the sides of the bowl as needed. You can also begin to add dribbles of coffee as needed to moisten.
  • Continue until it has reached your desired consistency; should be light and fluffy. Frost your cupcakes/cake/biscuits and enjoy!
