So I've been playing around with Indydebi's buttercream recipe, which I love, but I wanted it to have a hint of butter flavor so I wound up adding some almond and butter flavoring to it and I think it's come out great. Just wanted to share it in case anyone was interested.

Basically I make a double batch of Indy's BC using only 4 T of vanilla and add 1/4 t of clear butter flavoring and 1/8 t of clear almond extract. I've made it several times now and each time it's gotten amazing reviews. I'd love to hear what anyone else thinks!

Out of curiosity, what brand of butter flavoring do you use?

Also, that's 4 tablespoons of vanilla right?

I also like adding almond flavoring to my BC, but I found early on that you have to be very careful because that stuff is strong!

I agree, I always add butter, vanilla and almond flavouring to this recipe., as well as a few drops of lemon. The lemon brightens the taste without imparting any lemon flavour.

One other thing I do is to add 1/2 c of the milk to the powdered dream whip and heat it in the microwave before adding it. No graininess, just velvety smooth deliciousness!!

I use the Wilton clear butter flavoring, and yes that 4 tablespoons. Yeah, the almond can be very overpowering so only a touch is needed!

I do that flavor combo too! I also use liquid french vanilla coffee creamer, (instead of half and half.) and heat it for 30 sec with the the dream whip. icon_biggrin.gifthumbs_up.gif

I have to try the lemon flavoring, that sounds delicious! And I've never thought about premixing the dream whip before, but that's a great idea! I'm definitely trying that next batch!
