péché mignon | plan b chocolate buttercream

Serves 4

I discovered this by accident! And what a happy little accident it was! I was aiming to make buttercream icing with cocoa powder, but got half way through making it only to find I had run out of cocoa powder, so I had to go to emergency plan B! And it was delicious! You would never ever think this was dairy free.

Wheat free, dairy free, nut free, meat free version...



  1. Beat the margarine.
  2. Add 3 tbsp of icing sugar and beat until mixed.
  3. Add the vanilla essence and stir well.
  4. Break the chocolate into small pieces and melt in a pan with the water over a gentle heat.
  5. As soon as it's melted, add to the margarine and sugar.
  6. Add remaining sugar and beat in.

Maybe serve with...

This can be used with all sorts of things, as a cake filling

If you have chocolate leftover, see the chocolate fudge or Maggie B 's lethal chocolate cake. If you have margarine left, see the apple crumble, the poached pears, toasted oat and raisin cakes, and the banana and walnut Welsh cakes.
