Buttermilk-Chocolate Buttercream Frosting
Cream butter in a large bowl with an electric mixer. Mix in 2 cups powdered sugar, cocoa powder, almond extract, vanilla extract, and salt. Add buttermilk in small amounts until well combined. Add remaining 2 cups powdered sugar.
Do not use margarine or any other substitutions for the butter.
Keep in mind that amounts of milk and powdered sugar can be adjusted according to the desired consistency and yield. I use 6 cups powdered sugar and 1/2 cup buttermilk (give or take 1 to 2 tablespoons) to frost a 3-layer 9-inch round devil’s food cake.
