How to make Vegan Chocolate Frosting
By DK on Oct 04, 2009
I have a friend 'K' who loves chocolate to death. We have many similarities except this. Its indeed funny how we start our conversations every time we talk which goes in the following fashion. Every time she calls me, instead of the customary 'Hello' she would quip 'Started liking chocolate yet?' I would say 'mm..well nope, not yet!', she would reply 'Oh well everything is well with the world then !!!!' I would say 'K, you will never change!' she would then reply 'Clearly nor will you!!!!!! ' ..and then the rest of our conversations will continue. Her craze for chocolate is something I can never relate to, just like she would never contemplate why I run away from them. My mom has a sweet tooth too and I feel really left out amidst all these sweet tooth'ers (!!!! Yay - I invented a word!) So much so, K called me up and told me that her best birthday gift would be a chocolate pouring down from heavens right to her mouth!!!! Too much! Anyways, my first photo is symbolic to her dream although I am sure she would not mind opening her mouth wide open below my chocolate rain instead of that lifeless bowl! For all those Vegan's out there, don't feel bad about all this chocolate shower talk. I have an icing for you which not only takes jiffy to make, but is equally yummy to other versions. This icing is from Indian Cooking author - Tarla Dalal.
Prep Time: Under 15 min
Cook Time: Under 15 min
Yield: Makes about 1/2 cup (depending on the consistency)
- 1 cup icing/powdered sugar, sifted
- 1/4 cup cocoa powder
- About 1/3 cup warm water (this will make it little thin. Add tbsp at a time until you reach your desired consistency)
Not much of a step by step method to speak of. Just combine all the ingredients together until well combined. Don't forget to sift the powdered sugar. Makes life much easier when combining all of them together without any lumps. Add water tablespoon by Tablespoon until you get your desired thickness for the glaze. Of course you can always add some extra warm water if you find it too thick for your taste.
That's it. I am sure you have all the ingredients for it in your pantry right now. And it takes less 2 minutes!!!
