Mock Cream 简易牛油 淇淋

This is a simple and versatile kind of frosting that you will love. I love it after trying once, i know you will love this too.

It  is the MOCK CREAM. It is a blend of butter, icing sugar and some boiling water.





Mock Cream
Recipe source: cornercafe


Makes 1 heaped cup (about 250g) cream
Ingredients
125g butter, softened
75g (1/2 cup) icing sugar mixture
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
40ml (2 tablespoons) boiling water
20ml (1 tablespoon) water at room temperature



To Do:
Mix boiling water and room-temperature water; set aside. Cream softened butter and icing sugar until light, pale and fluffy. Beat in vanilla. Gradually add the warm water, one teaspoon at a time, and beat well to incorporate after each addition. As you add the water and beat, it might be a good idea to beat by hand (or using the lowest speed if using electric beater) to prevent the water splashing about.
(I am using a hand mixer on the lowest speed )

I am using this cream for my Pandan Ogura Cake.
Stay Tune!!  :D

    1. Ah Chi,
      I have the same feeling too when I look at this recipe. Actually if you look at the recipe it says 40g boiling water mixed with 20g room temperature water so it's like warm, not hot.. :p
      Anyway, I love this, it is smooth and nice: )
