    Coffee Frosting

    Source of Recipe


    Recipe Introduction

    This recipe came from my grandmother and is infamous among people who know us. I have never found coffee frosting anywhere else, and this one is definitely the best! Perfect for those who like a rich icing to go with their cake or cookie.

    List of Ingredients

    1/3 C. strong coffee
    4 C. confectioners powdered sugar (1 box)
    1/3 C. butter (softened)
    1/8 tsp. salt
    1 tsp. vanilla

    Optional: add 1 square of unsweetened chocolate if you want to add some extra kick to this frosting.


    1. Prepare strong coffee. For best resuts, add 1/2 medium ground to one cup of cold water. Boil over stovetop and then let stand for 2 minutes.
    2. Strain twice to avoid getting grounds in frosting.
    3. Combine sugar gradually with butter.
    4. Add coffee as needed to make a creamy and smooth mixture.
    5. Add salt and vanilla.

    **DO NOT add coffee all at once. You do not want the frosting to be too soft; you want a spreadable consistency.
