Ingredients
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
  • 2 cups confectioner's sugar
  • ½ cup maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
  • maple flavoring (optional)
Instructions
  1. Cream softened butter with the paddle attachment of your stand mixer or beat well with your hand mixer until the butter has lightened in color, about 3 minutes. Add confectioner's sugar and incorporate fully. Turn your mixer onto high speed to make sure the sugar is well incorporated and to lighten the mixture. Reduce the speed of your mixer and add maple syrup, vanilla extract, and salt. Turn your mixer back onto high speed and beat for about 30 seconds to lighten. Taste the buttercream to make sure it has the flavor you prefer, if you would like more maple flavor, add maple flavoring 1 teaspoon at a time until it has reached the flavor you prefer. You may need to incorporate additional sugar to have your buttercream at the proper consistency.

Enjoy!

    This recipe sounds really good. Just to note though, just tried making it and I think the measurements are off. 1 cup of confectioners sugar is definitely not enough to make this frosting light and creamy. You might want to suggest 3-4 cups of sugar because with just 1, it looks like a goopy mess! Otherwise, once adjusted, tastes pretty damn good!!

    You are right Curt Sousa, I also had the same problem with the frosting being really runny. I tripled the batch so it took me forever to get it to the right consistency. But it was really good.

    I thought that this recipe would be good to pipe on cupcakes for the fact that the photo shows the frosting piped out but when I tried it it was WAY to liquidy the measurements must be off. At the bottom of the recipe it said you may have to incorporate additional sugar and oh boy did I!
