Homemade Cream Cheese Frosting

I rarely make cakes with creamy frosting. Its either a cake served as such or the favorite Chocolate frosting / ganache.The kids don't really ask for frosting but I have always been wanting to make at least one creamy frosting for the cake.

So when I was baking for the Fire Up The Oven series, I made this Cream cheese frosting for the Eggless Butterless Red Velvet Cake.

I don't find cream cheese in the store very often and even if I see it, its pretty expensive!!! So I searched the web and found this easy method to make cream cheese and the frosting.

I used:

For the cream cheese

Homemade paneer - From 1 litre milk
Yogurt- 1 tablespoon

Take the paneer and yogurt in a blender jar and whip till smooth and whisk till creamy.Transfer it into a cheese cloth and tie the ends together and hang it in place to let it drain. Let it drain for 4-5 hours.

To make the frosting

Cream cheese from the above method
Butter -30 grams

Powdered sugar -1 cup
Milk-1 tablespoon

Take all the ingredients in a bowl and whisk well till you get a creamy consistency.
