Foolproof Buttercream

Foolproof Buttercream

This is how to make butter cream without separation.
You can make it easily in a microwave.

Ingredients: About 1/2 cup (100 ml) worth

Unsalted butter
70 g
Egg white
1 1/2 tablespoons


1. Put butter in a large bowl, and microwave for 20 ~ 30 seconds. When it has softened, mix well with a whisk until white and smooth.
2. Whip the egg white and make a stiff meringue (until stiff peaks form.)
3. Add honey to a heatproof dish, and microwave for about 30 seconds. When it starts to bubble, it's ready.
4. Drizzle in the honey little by little like a thread into the Step 2 meringue, and continue mixing. When you have finished adding it all, whip some more to make the meringue mixture shiny and stiff.
5. Add Step 4 meringue into Step 1 butter in several batches, mix well, then it's done. Tip: Add a small amount of meringue, and mix well, then repeat.
