Orange Cream Frosting

This sweet and citrus-y orange cream frosting is one of my favorite fillings. It pairs especially well with light and airy angel food cake.

Yield: Enough to frost 1 9-inch cake

Total Time:1 hour 30 min (including cooling)

Ingredients:

  • 6 large egg yolks
  • 1 cup (200gr) sugar
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 2/3 cup (160ml) orange juice
  • Pinch of salt
  • ¾ cup (170gr) unsalted butter, cut into pieces
  • 1 cup (240ml) heavy cream
  • 1 tablespoon grated orange peel

Directions:

  1. In a medium saucepan, whisk together egg yolks, sugar, cornstarch, orange juice and salt until well combined. Stir in butter and cook for 2-3 minutes over medium heat. Bring the mixture to a boil, stirring constantly. And let it boil for 3-5 minutes until thickened. Pour orange mixture through fine mesh strainer. Cover with plastic wrap so it touches the orange curd. Refrigerate for about an hour.
  2. In a clean bowl, beat the heavy cream on high speed till hard peaks form. Fold the whipped cream and grated orange peal into the cooled orange curd.

The original recipe is from Betty Crocker.
