I know, I know... I am a terrible food blogger. I made a promise and I have not kept up my part of the bargain. It's no excuse, I know, but life has been very busy lately. Luckily I have a couple of days to slow down and catch up. Today is Alexander's Half Birthday. I have decided to celebrate it but he has no idea. I baked a chocolate cake last night while his older brother gave him a bath. While I baked Rebecca ran down to the basement to wrap the small gift I had gotten him.
Today I made the frosting. The best, EVER, frosting I have EVER had.
I love Nutella. I cannot get enough of Nutella.
We all love Nutella. So I decided to make a Nutella frosting. I saw some recipes online but they seemed just so-so. I liked the idea but they lacked in true Nutella flavor. So I toyed around until my taste buds deemed my recipe to be perfect. I think you'll agree. You'll have to!
Nutella Buttercream Frosting
1 stick of butter
2 cups of confectioner's sugar
4 tbs milk
3 tbs cocoa powder (unsweetened)
ONE CUP of Nutella!
In a large mixing bowl fitted with a paddle, cream together butter and sugar. Add to the mixture the milk and the cocoa powder. Mix well. Finally beat in the Nutella. Beat on high so frosting gets nice and fluffy.
DO NOT eat all the frosting out of the bowl before you put it on the cake!
