You can never have too many chocolate frostings in your repertoire.  This is for the times you want a little tang with your sweetness.  It’s great on carrot cake, banana cake, and pound cake. Don’t you think this would be good topped with sliced bananas?  I do.

For a chocolate frosting with no tang, just nice sweetness, try this chocolate buttercream frosting.

What You'll Need

  • 1/2 cup butter (1 stick, unsalted, at room temperature)
  • 3 cups powdered sugar (or as needed)
  • 2/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/3 cup sour cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract (pure​)​

How to Make It

  1.  In a medium sized bowl combine the butter, sugar, cocoa powder, sour cream and 

    vanilla with an electric mixture.  Beat on medium speed until very fluffy.
