Quick Milk Buttercream (in the microwaves)

Quick Milk Buttercream (in the microwaves)

This buttercream is very good, a useful invention for the busy cooks - it tastes almost the same as the classic milk buttercream, cooked on the stovetop.

It takes about 10 minutes to cook and some time to cool down - I warmly recommend it, you can use it for any cake you like.

Ingredients

Milk
400 ml
Egg yolks
2 pieces
White flour
3 tbsp
or 3 tbsp starch
Sugar
80 g
Butter
50 g
Vanilla Extract
1 piece

Step by step

1

In a heat resistant dish which you will also put in the microwaves, beat the egg yolks and the sugar using a whisk.

2

Add in flour and mix well to make sure there are no lumps.

3

Now comes the milk, pour it little by little, mixing well each time so that the mixture is smooth.

4

Put it in the microwave for 4-5 minutes - and PAY ATTENTION - take it out after each minute and whisk.

5

Each time you take out the cream to mix, you will notice it gets thicker. If it gets thick enough sooner - say, after 3-4 minutes, don't put it back in the microwave.

6

In this hot mixture tip the butter and the vanilla extract, whisk well. 

And it's done, you now have the perfect cream for different cakes - and it's very quick as well. 

Enjoy!
