Creamy Butter Frosting

Cupcake With Creamy Butter Frosting

Ingredients:

  • 1/3 cup butter
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 pound (3 1/2 cups) confectioners sugar, sifted if it’s organic or has visible lumps
  • 3 to 4 tablespoons milk or light cream, or enough to make smooth and spreadable

Preparation:

Cream butter, salt, and vanilla, beating with an electric mixer until light and fluffy. Add the confectioners’ sugar gradually, beating after each addition. Add 3 tablespoons milk or light cream, beating until smooth. Beat in more milk until desired spreading consistency is reached and the frosting is spreadable. Makes about 2 1/3 cups of frosting, enough to frost tops and sides of of an 8-inch 2-layer cake or a 10-inch tube or bundt cake, or about 1 dozen cupcakes.
