Does anyone have a buttercream recipe that can be used with liquid coffee creamer? But that is also stiff? I found a recipe but found it wasn't stiff and my buttercream ended up being a mess, because I didn't want to add any more powdered sugar and then have it overly sweet. Can any of you bakers please help me out
Thanks in advance.
I’ m Wondering if you just didn’t beat it enough I’ve never even seen such a recipe much less made it but it sure sounds like it wasn’t stiff enough because it just wasn’t beaten well I don’t drink coffee so don’t use creamer Is there even fat in it? Unless you mean whipping cream
If you are replacing cream, milk, water - whatever liquid normally used - with liquid coffee creamer, I see no reason why it wouldn't be as firm as usual. I would add more sugar. ABC is sweet, but a little salt will help cut the sweetness.
I second Sandra. I would just replace it with the liquid in the recipe..mine would be milk. This is an interesting thought for a subtle way to change the taste of buttercream, there's so many different flavors! Goodness, I may have to try this!
I use it all the time, it helps add a little flavor. Most of the time I use the sweet cream or white chocolate macadamia nut.
Read the label. Some coffee creamers, especially generic brands, have a lot of oil in them, which will change the consistency of the buttercream. Many years ago, a food service brand of coffee creamer used at a lunch counter I frequented used a creamer that had monkeys on the container. When I inquired about it, the server handed me the container and said, "Read the ingredients." It had banana oil in it.
Why not use powdered coffee creamer? It works great.
