Cream Cheese Frosting

I have been using this cream cheese frosting recipe on my bundt cakes and sheet cakes regularly. I especially love it on carrot cake and banana bread / cake or cupcakes.  You could also use it to frost cinnamon rolls!  This recipe is adapted from Baked by an Introvert . I cut the recipe in half and left out the orange zest. This is enough for a good layer of frosting on one bundt cake. Above: Frosted Carrot Cake Above: Frosted Banana Cake Cream Cheese Frosting Ingredients 1/2 cup salted butter, softened 1 8oz package cream cheese, softened (full fat - brick form) 2 cups confectioners’ sugar 1/2 tablespoon meringue powder 1 teaspoons vanilla extract pinch of salt Directions Whip the butter and cream cheese with an electric mixer on medium speed until well combined.  Use a large bowl so the sugar doesn't fly everywhere when you add it.

How I Make Grilled Cheese

Sandwiches are what's for dinner on the nights when I'm too lazy to make anything else. 

Here's how I like to make grilled cheese. You can use any bread and cheese that you like. Tonight I used sharp cheddar and rye. Here we go.


How I Make Grilled Cheese
Makes 1 Sandwich

Ingredients
  • 2 slices of bread
  • cheese of choice
  • butter
  • granulated garlic
Directions
  1. Butter both pieces of bread and sprinkle them with granulated garlic. Place the cheese between the slices with the buttered sides facing out.
  2. Heat a frying pan somewhere between medium and medium low heat. Resist the urge to use higher heat, the bread will burn before the cheese melts. Just be patient.
  3. Place the sandwich on the pan and cook until the first side is lightly golden. Flip the sandwich carefully trying not to lose any of the cheese in the process. Cook it until the second side is golden and the cheese has melted. Let it cool slightly before you eat it or you'll burn your tongue.
  4. There you have it. A grilled cheese that almost tastes like garlic bread.
