Chocolate Buttercream/Chocolate Buttercream Frosting Recipe.

Fluffy Chocolate Buttercream ..A rich and chocolaty frosting ..perfect to frost your cupcakes and cakes .Personally I am a ganche lover but I do enjoy this delicious buttercream once a while.There's an eggless chocolate cake with buttercream frosting in the blog already but here i have already the recipe .

Ingredients
100 gm butter(unsalted)
a pinch of salt
2 1/4 to 2 1/2  cup icing sugar/confectioner's sugar
1/2 cup cocoa/coco powder
4 to 5 tbsp cream or milk
1/2 tsp vanilla essence/extract

Method
Sift icing sugar and cocoa,salt  and keep aside
In a bowl take butter at room temperature and beat till fluffy.
Add the sifted sugar and cocoa in three to four additions beat it everytime you add the sugar
Add milk and vanilla and beat till mix
The buttercream needs to be fluffy but do not over whip/beat



use butter at room temp
start with 1 tbsp liquid first then add more as required add Little at a time if you add all in one go you may end up with a creamy frosting which will be difficult to pipe
if the buttercream is whipped too stiff it will be difficult to pipe ,it needs to be fluffy and smooth
if the buttercream doesn't hold shape while piping ,keep the piping bag filled with buttercream in the fridge for 15 to 20 minutes then pipe.
you can store this frosting in air tight container in refrigerator upto a week
whip it till fluffy and frost.
