This frosting recipe is OK for Induction and you can pretty much use it as a base frosting to which you add vanilla or the extract or flavor oil of your choosing. Or perhaps some lemon zest, lime zest, orange zest? Maybe some pureed fruits or berries? And if in OWL, you could even add coconut and/or chopped nuts. Let the cake or muffin you are putting it on be your guide!! Tonight, I tested two flavors on my plain Individual Vanilla Cake shown in the pics at left and right. This frosting is delicious and very fluffy.
1 c. heavy cream, whipped
4 oz. softened cream cheese
1/3 c. erythritol, powdered
6 drops liquid sucralose or liquid stevia (I use Stevita)
flavoring(s) of your choosing (extracts, zest, rosewater, citrus oils, various spice blends)
DIRECTIONS: Whip heavy cream until very thick. Add softened cream cheese, powdered erythritol (I just buy the granular and powder it myself in the food processor a couple minutes) and liquid sweetener. Whip until smooth and well blended. Add the flavorings of your choice and stir well.
