Hi, I been ask to make a chocolate-strawberry cake with vanilla filling, Das anyone have rich vanilla frosting recipe,and can you tell me wich brand of vanilla flavoring is the best for you.
..moving to Recipe Requests.
Do you want a frosting, or a vanilla custard type filling?
For frosting, regular vanilla buttercream with your favorite vanilla extract. If you want to get extra fancy, you can store a bent vanilla bean with your sugar to infuse it with vanilla flavor. You can add vanilla beans (scraped from a pod or vanilla bean paste from a bottle) to your BC as well.
As for vanilla custard/pastry cream:
For an easy faux Bavarian:
1 4 oz pkg vanilla or French vanilla flavored instant vanilla pudding mix
1 c whole milk
1 c heavy whipping cream, whipped OR 1 c of Cool Whip (regular, not extra creamy or reduced fat)
Blend milk and pudding mix together until creamy. Fold in whipped cream or Cool Whip.
If a lighter product is desired, increase whipped cream or Cool Whip to 2 cups
prterrell tank you so much for your recipes, I like the faux bavarian, I will make that one thanks
You're welcome! Just remember, because it does contain dairy, it must be refrigerated.
these sound amazing. thanks for sharing. gotta try some myself.
