INSTANT PUDDING BUTTERCREAM
Ek het ‘n baie lekker versiersel ontdek wat nog nie op die blog is nie. Dis maklik, nie oorsoet nie en proe amper soos Swiss Buttercream.
- 2 cups whole milk (500 g)
- ¼ cup (75 ml) sugar (30 g)
- 10 ml vanilla
- 2 boxes of Vanilla Pudding Mix (I used Moirs Caramel)
- 300 g unsalted butter, cubed, ROOM TEMP
- 1 cake to decorate
Add milk to a pot you sprayed with oil (prevent burning), combine everything except the butter in your pot. Stir and boil until thick, careful that it does not burn. Empty into a bowl and cover with clingwrap to cool to room temperature.
Very important. If your pudding is even slightly warm it will melt the butter instead of incorporating it. I cooled mine by inserting this bowl into another bowl with salted ice and water.
Add this cold mixture to a stand mixer, and with the whisk attachment, whip on high while you add your butter in chunks. Whip until you get a thick smooth buttercream, about 5 minutes.
If it looks like it is splitting, just keep on whisking to bring it back.
Like all buttercreams (Italian/swiss) it goes through a “split” stage before coming together, just keep at it.
The taste of your buttercream will depend on the flavour of your pudding. But even just vanilla is YUM!
