Gluten-Free buttercream frosting recipe courtesy of Ener-G Foods.
- 1/2 cup solid vegetable shortening
- 1/2 cup butter or margarine
- 1 tsp gluten-free vanilla extract
- 4 cups powdered sugar
- 2 tbsp milk or water
- 1 tsp Ener-G Egg Replacer
Gradually add sugar, one cup at a time, beating well on medium speed. Scrape sides and bottom of the bowl often. When all the sugar has been mixed in, icing will appear dry.
Add milk and beat at medium speed until light and fluffy. Keep icing covered with a damp cloth until ready to use.
For best results, keep icing bowl in refrigerator when not in use. Refrigerated in an airtight container, this icing can be stored 2 weeks. Rewhip before using.
