Pomegranate Butter Cream Frosting

Courses: Dessert
Serves: 12 people

Recipe Ingredients

1 1/2 cups 297g / 10ozButter - (3 sticks) - softened
3 cups 594g / 20ozSifted powdered sugar
2 teaspoons 10mlVanilla extract
3 tablespoons 45mlPomegranate molasses
  = (sold in specialty markets and
  Well-stocked supermarkets)
1/2 cup 55g / 1.9ozPomegranate seeds - divided, see * Note
1/2 cup 73g / 2.6ozChopped walnuts - toasted

Recipe Instructions

* Note: To remove the seeds, roll the pomegranate on a cutting board, pressing down slightly. Then score the leathery skin into quarters and submerge it in a bowl of cold water. Gently break open the pomegranate and separate the seeds from the pith. The pith will float to the top of the bowl, and can be easily scooped off. Be sure to keep the fruit under water as you work, to prevent it from squirting on you and your clothing.

Beat the butter until light and creamy, then gradually add the powdered sugar until the frosting is light and fluffy. Beat in the vanilla and pomegranate molasses.

To frost a cake, cut the cake in half horizontally, and place the bottom on a cake plate. Spread one-fourth of the frosting over the cake and sprinkle with half the pomegranate seeds. Top with the other cake half and frost the top and sides of the cake with the remaining frosting. Sprinkle the cake with the chopped nuts and the remaining pomegranate seeds.

This recipe yields enough to frost a 9-inch layer cake.
