Maple Coffee Frosting

So I decided to try out TPW's Maple coffee frosting, and OMG. OMMMMGGG.

Just wow. On the cinnamon rolls, that is. INSANE.

Now I will say that I didn't make this whole recipe, b/c her cinnamon roll recipe has like 8C of flour, ie makes a TON, lol, and my bitty bread machine didn't make that many.

I was going to halve it, but I was unsure on the whole "bag of powdered sugar" thing, 16oz (half my bag) seemed like a LOT of powdered sugar, so I just halved everything else, and added powdered sugar til I got a thick but pourable consistancy and it tasted good ;) Sorry, I didn't measure, just poured. You really can't mess it up though.

TPW's Maple Coffee Frosting

1 bag of powdered sugar
2 teaspoons maple flavoring (didn't have this, just used maple syrup)
1/2 cup milk (i used cream)
1/4 cup melted butter
1/4 cup of brewed coffee (i used espresso)
Also add 1/8 teaspoon (a generous pinch) salt.

mix it up and pour it all over cinnamon rolls that are still warm. or cake, cookies, or just pour it in your mouth. whatever ;)

  1. I have been eyeing TPW's recipe for quite some time. I'm with you in not wanting 7 pans of rolls but the frosting recipe I can't pass up. (Maybe I'll do the whole recipe if I ever need to feed a room full of people). I've been wondering about a "bag of powdered sugar" too and trying to figure out what size bag she's referring too. I'm so glad I came across your post, I was nervous about halving it and winging it but I'll go for it since it worked for you! Thanks for the confidence boost! :)
