Bûche de Noël: Chocolate Apricot Frosting Recipe
The crazy continues
I'd love to sit and chat but I have a cake to frost. With this.
Chocolate Apricot Frosting Recipe
Cream 3/4 cup each butter with 3/4 cup powdered sugar + 1/3 cup cocoa
Beat 3 egg whites until foamy and slowly sprinkle in 3/4 cup powdered sugar. Beat to billowy, stiff peaks.
Dice a handful of dried apricots, splash with amaretto and set aside for 30 min.
Gently fold 1/3 of meringue into the sweet chocolatey butter. Repeat with other 2 thirds. Add apricots and mix in gently. refrigerate until cake goes into oven, then set on counter to soften.
