     Chocolate Buttercream Frosting (frosts one cake)

Category   Desserts - Breads
Sub Category   None

6 ounces semisweet chocolate
1/2 pound unsalted butter, at room temperature
1 egg yolk, at room temperature
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/4 cups sifted confectioners sugar
1 tablespoon instant coffee granules

Chop the chocolate and place it in a heatproof bowl over a pan over simmering water. Stir until just melted and set aside until cooled to room temperature. Beat the butter in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment on medium-high speed until light yellow and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Add the egg yolk and vanilla and continue beating for 3 minutes. Turn the mixer to low, gradually add the confectionersí sugar, then beat at medium speed, scraping down the bowl as necessary, until smooth and creamy. Dissolve the coffee in 2 teaspoons of the hottest tap water. On low speed, add the chocolate and coffee to the butter mixture and mix until blended. Donít whip! Spread immediately on the cooled cake. Note- I use Valrhona Le Noir 56 percent Cacao Semisweet Chocolate. You can use also use a good bittersweet chocolate but donít use chocolate chips because they have stabilizers in them.
