I've never had it or heard of it till I came here. Tonight I was making a pumpkin spice cake and thought maple buttercream would be yummy as a filling and icing. I googled, found a basic recipe, and made it. OMG... it is so, so good! I love maple buttercream, lol.
So... do any of you make it and if so, what cake flavors does it taste good with?
I love maple!!!!
It goes with everything! In my books anyway!
Chocolate, vanilla, golden, spiced (pumpkin, carrot, zuchini), oatmeal...maybe not lemon though!
I like to make a maple BC, and blend it with 1 cup of chopped walnuts that have been toasted in 1 T butter. Of course, real maple syrup! It makes a good filling for a butter cake.
