Chocolate Frosting -- Grandmama Style
This simple frosting is the one I associate most with my childhood. My grandmama almost always made a thin sheet cake and frosted it with this. I do make mine a little thicker than she made hers. (This is not the hardest fudge, but somewhere between.)
Sift 4 cups of powdered sugar and set aside.
1 stick of butter
4 tablespoons of cocoa powder
1/3 cup of whole milk
Melt butter over a low/medium heat in a saucepan. Whisk in cocoa powder and milk. Bring to a boil (stirring as you go) and remove from heat. Stir in sugar.
If you are frosting a layer cake this will do a large sheet pan. If you are making a layer cake it will give generous layers of frosting. Be forewarned, you need to be ready to frost your cake as soon as you finish mixing in the sugar because it starts to set up quickly.
