Directions See How It's Made
- Cook .1 cup milk, 3 tbls flour and 1/2 cup white sugar -- leave the lid on so no skin forms -- cool and mix together the following -- 1/2 cup margarine, 1/2 cup sugar, 1 cup crisco shortening,pinch of slat and 1 tsp vanilla --
- add to first mixture and beat well.
- you can spread this between the two layers of cake, or cut each layer in half and you would have 3 layers of filling instead of one.
- to prepare the topping ingredients.
- melt butter and add cocoa powder and blend.add 1/4 cup boiling water and powdered sugar til thick enough --
- pour over cake -- make it thin enough so it will drip over the edges.
- I have really taken some liberties with this recipe for filling -- I have baked different flavored cakes.and use the filling from this.and made glaze co-ordinate with cake flavor.this is a great all purpose recipe -- many ways to use this idea.
