Teaspoons Vanilla

Note: the 1 1/2 frosts a 2 layer round cake; the triple frosts a 2 layer 13” x 9” cake

Traditional method: Over medium low heat, stir flour and milk with a whisk until thick.

With the times method: In a large glass microwavable bowl with a handle, heat flour and milk mixture in microwave until thick, stirring every 45 seconds. Don’t walk away because this could bubble over very quickly.

Cool mixture down completely.

In a mixer cream butter, shortening and sugar. Add flour/milk mixture and beat until fluffy. Add vanilla and beat a minute more.

 

This makes the most spreadable frosting you have ever made. Try adding a quarter cup of cocoa to the flour and milk mixture for a rich chocolate frosting.

 Have a yummy day! JudeTheFoodie.com
