Seven-Minute Frosting

Prep Time:7 Min Total Time:7 MinYields 4


  • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened

  • 4 cups confectioners sugar, sifted

  • pinch of salt

  • 2 tsp vanilla

  • 1-2 tbsp milk


  • In a large bowl, whip the butter until it's very light and fluffy. The butter should turn from a yellow color, to an ivory/cream color. About 1 1/2 to 2 minutes.

  • Mix in sifted sugar 1 cup at a time. Mix until the sugar is barely combined before adding in the next cup. Then mix in the salt, vanilla, and at least 1 tbsp of the milk.

  • If the mixture is still a bit crumbly or dry feeling, add the additional milk. Mix on high speed for another 30 seconds.

Notes: You can replace the vanilla with any flavoring you prefer.
