Chocolate Frosting Recipe by

Preparing this chocolate frosting has been on my to-do list for a while! Ever since I posted my first recipe, chocolate cake, back in December, and I’ve been meaning to prepare and post one of my favorite chocolate frosting recipes.

At the time, I was still learning my way around blogging and completely forgot to take any photos of the chocolate frosting! With all the other food I have been cooking and baking, preparing and posting chocolate frosting just kept being postponed.

I have several delicious and easy recipes for chocolate frosting and chocolate cream that I prepare. I chose to post this one first because I find it to be the easiest chocolate icing ever, and all the ingredients are always handy.

I have found that when we pour the chocolate icing on the cake while the cake and icing are still a little warm, we get a better result as the outer layer of the cake absorbs some of the icing.

1        cup dark cocoa powder (the color of the cocoa impacts the icing color)
½       cup milk  (you can use skimmed milk)
2        tablespoons butter
2        tablespoons starch (corn flour)

  • While the chocolate cake and icing are still a bit warm, pour the icing over the cake. I have noticed that pouring the icing while still warm ensures that the warm cake absorbs some of it… a yummy combination!

Note: When the icing cools it thickens, so if you desire a creamier more spreadable icing then let it cool before using.
