So when I was baking for the Fire Up The Oven series, I made this Cream cheese frosting for the Eggless Butterless Red Velvet Cake.
I don't find cream cheese in the store very often and even if I see it, its pretty expensive!!! So I searched the web and found this easy method to make cream cheese and the frosting.
For the cream cheese
Homemade paneer - From 1 litre milk
Yogurt- 1 tablespoon
Take the paneer and yogurt in a blender jar and whip till smooth and whisk till creamy.Transfer it into a cheese cloth and tie the ends together and hang it in place to let it drain. Let it drain for 4-5 hours.
To make the frosting
Cream cheese from the above method
Butter -30 grams
Powdered sugar -1 cup
Take all the ingredients in a bowl and whisk well till you get a creamy consistency.
You as a topping/frosting for cakes...
- You can use a drop or two of vanilla essence while making the frosting.
- To make chocolate cream cheese frosting, add a tablespoon of cocoa powder.
- The frosting was a bit sweet to my liking,but the kids loved it.So adjust the sugar accordingly.
- If the mixture is very thick, add a little extra cream or milk in the final step and whisk well.
