A Simple Maple Frosting

cupcakes n frosting

Earlier this past week I posted a recipe for pumpkin cupcakes with a maple frosting and I decided to make a post specifically for frostings to make it easier to search for. Not only that but if you have a box of cake mix sitting around why not making it special with this homemade frosting. You do need a hand mixer to get the right consistency, trust me trying to do this by hand would kill your arm. This frosting is nice and flavorful and can be adapted to taste by using your favorite maple syrup. If the frosting gets to thin just add more confectioner (powdered) sugar. The frosting should be lighter, it is not a thick frosting like you would get from a tub in a store.

Maple Cream Cheese Frosting:

  • 1 (8-ounce) block cream cheese
  • 2 tablespoons butter, at room temperature
  • 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup
  • 2 cups powdered sugar

Combine the butter, cream cheese, and maple syrup together with the hand mixer to allow for a better consistency. Slowly add in the powdered sugar. Do this in small groups and make sure that you get out all of the lumps. (If possible sift the powdered sugar into the bowl) Taste the frosting once you have incorporated all of the powdered sugar, if you want a bolder taste add more syrup a ½ teaspoon at a time.

Happy Baking
