Simple buttercream frosting recipe

The mere mention of buttercream brings back fond childhood memories of the most delicious cakes I enjoyed as a child. This recipe is short, sweet and straight to the point.

  • 2 sticks of butter, softened
  • 4 cups powdered sugar
  • generous splash heavy cream (I count to 3 when pouring)
  • light splash of vanilla
Beat together butter and powdered sugar until combined. Pour in heavy cream and vanilla, beat until blended thoroughly. If frosting is very soft, refrigerate for 15-20 minutes before using.

Cook's Notes-If you wish to flavor or tint your frosting, add these ingredients when you add the other liquids.
