Yesterday I posted the recipe for golden yellow cake. Here is the recipe for the vanilla frosting I made for it. I am a HUGE chocolate fan, but sometimes a simple yellow cake with vanilla frosting is what I crave.
*Note: This recipe was based on one of my chocolate frosting recipes. I simply omitted the cocoa and reduced the milk.
1 stick butter, softened but NOT MELTED
3 cups powdered sugar
1/4-1/3 cup whole milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Beat together the softened butter and powdered sugar, while slowly adding the milk. Put just a teaspoon at a time, mixing well after each addition.
When the consistency is where you like it, add the vanilla and mix well again.
*Note: I put it on high and step away for a minute or two. Makes it light and fluffy.
Frosts one 9×13 cake or two 8×8 or 9×9 cakes.
