My friend Denise gave me this recipe many years ago. After I tasted a cake she had baked and topped with this super yummy chocolate frosting, I just had to have it!
It is the perfect combination of creamy, buttery, chocolaty yum with a hint of coffee. I like to pipe it on to cupcakes or spread on top of a simple sheet cake (covers a 9×13 cake).
It is great on white or chocolate cake but I like in on chocolate cake the best. Take it over the top with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Yum!
So go bake a cake for your Valentine or just because. Any day is a great day for chocolate cake! Especially one topped with this yummy frosting!
Really Good Chocolate Frosting:
- 1/2 cup butter
- 1 cup powdered sugar
- 2/3 cup unsweetened cocoa
Cream together for about 2 minutes then add the following:
- 2 tablespoon hot coffee
- 2 tablespoons milk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
Blend together and frost cake.
Simple and really, really good! Enjoy!
