My family's favorite chocolate frosting recipe - easy, dense and fudge-like! It wouldn't be a birthday cake at my house without this frosting on top.
This was a very nice & easy frosting...it pairs well with the Nairobi Chocolate cake & I'm sure will be a big hit at the scout bake sale. I made according to recipe, but for personal use, I would decrease the sugar by 1 cup...but that's pretty typical of us, I do the same on our cream cheese frosting for Italian Cream Cake, we just don't like our frosting so sweet!
This is so delicious!! I've done a lot of baking but never tried a homemade buttercream. (So many recipes call for shortening! Yuck!) This is light years better than tub frosting and so quick and easy. I used instant espresso instead of coffee (because that is what I keep on hand) and Lindt Sweet Dark chocolate. The espresso adds a wonderful depth of flavor. Thanks for the recipe. I will never buy chocolate frosting again.
