Author Notes: My great aunt made this simple chocolate frosting for a simple chocolate cake at least once a week for her family which included my semi orphaned father, who like her, was a huge chocolate lover. If she was alive today, Evie would be 133 years old. She lived to quite an advanced age and I was lucky to be next to the frosting bowl many times to get the privilege of licking the spatula. My mother continued to make the cake for my father and I can honestly say that neither he nor I ever tired of it. dymnyno

Makes 2 cups

  • 2/3 cups melted butter
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 4 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 4 tablespoons strong coffee (I use cold brew)
  1. Sift the powdered sugar and the cocoa powder together in a large mixing bowl.
  2. Pour in the melted butter and the strong coffee and mix together.
  3. Using a wire whisk,(I use a flat whisk) whip it together until it becomes fluffy and smooth, about 3 or 4 minutes.
