Vanilla Malted FrostingPosted: May 11, 2010
For our bbq, I made a ton of chocolate and vanilla cupcakes. I used Sour Cream Chocolate frosting on half (on blog soon), and this amazing vanilla frosting from Jaime! This was nice and smooth and very flavorful. I like just how creamy this came out and not grainy or sugary at all.
Ingredients:–I cut this recipe in half..seemed like it would make a lot and it did even when I halved the recipe!
1 ¼ lbs (5 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
8 cups Confectioners’ sugar
1 cup malted milk powder
1 tsp table salt
2 Tbsp vanilla extract
1 vanilla bean, scraped
¼ cup heavy cream
In standing mixer fitted with whisk attachment, beat butter at medium-high speed until smooth, about 20 seconds.
Add salt and half of the sugar; beat at medium-low speed until most of the sugar is moistened, about 45 seconds. Add the rest of the sugar and continue mixing until combined.
Scrape down bowl and beat at medium speed until mixture is fully combined, about 15 seconds; scrape bowl, add vanilla and heavy cream, and beat at medium speed until incorporated, about 10 seconds.
Add in malted milk powder, and stir at medium to combine.
Increase speed to medium-high and beat until light and fluffy, about 4 minutes, scraping down bowl once or twice.
