"Perfect buttermilk-chocolate buttercream frosting to frost devil's food cake. Rich, buttery, and chocolaty with just a hint of almond, yummy. It took me a while to get this frosting right."

  1. Cream butter in a large bowl with an electric mixer. Mix in 2 cups powdered sugar, cocoa powder, almond extract, vanilla extract, and salt. Add buttermilk in small amounts until well combined. Add remaining 2 cups powdered sugar.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • Do not use margarine or any other substitutions for the butter.
  • Keep in mind that amounts of milk and powdered sugar can be adjusted according to the desired consistency and yield. I use 6 cups powdered sugar and 1/2 cup buttermilk (give or take 1 to 2 tablespoons) to frost a 3-layer 9-inch round devil's food cake.
