Made with cold brew coffee, Latte Buttercream Frosting is packed full of the flavor of your favorite drink.
I don’t think it’s a secret that we love coffee. After all, we named our blog Coffee With Us 3, because we wanted you to feel like you could sit down, have a chat with us, and enjoy the recipes we’re sharing with you. So when Kerry and I attended the Everything Food Conference last month, and we were brainstorming ideas for new blog posts we could share with you, it is no surprise that I kept going back to desserts that contained coffee.
Despite starting every day with coffee, we’ve only shared a few recipes that contained coffee so far. I needed to remedy that.
If you’re a coffee lover like we are, you’ll enjoy these recipes:
Chocolate Coffee Depression Cake – dairy free, egg free, moist and delicious
Chocolate Coffee Quick Bread – Easy to throw together, and full of flavor
Mocha Pops – A refreshing frozen treat
Summery coffee treats that don’t require you to heat up your house
I made this Latte Buttercream Frosting to go with a Cold Brew Latte Cake I’ll be sharing this week. Now to be honest, I’m not a huge cake fan. I enjoy cake occasionally, but I’d usually rather have cookies or cheesecake. However, this cake was amazing. I couldn’t walk past it without sneaking a little bite. It was so good!
I shared it with the ladies from my church, and they agreed that it was delicious. So whether you make this Latte Buttercream Frosting to frost the Cold Brew Latte Cake, or to spread on graham crackers, or even to just eat by the spoonful, you’re going to enjoy it!
You can make latte buttercream frosting with espresso or another strongly brewed coffee, but I used cold brew coffee in mine. I like that cold brew coffee gives a great strong coffee flavor, but isn’t bitter. Make your own cold brew coffee.
- 2/3 cups butter, softened
- 1 Tbsp. cold brew coffee or strongly brewed coffee ***
- 4 cups powdered sugar
- 4 Tbsp. milk
In a large bowl, using an electric mixer, beat butter and coffee.
Beat powdered sugar in one cup at a time, beating until smooth between additions.
Beat in milk one Tablespoon at a time, until desired consistency is reached. It may not take all 4 Tbsp.
Frosts a two-layer cake.
