A wonderful, fluffy white frosting similar to whipped cream. It's great on Red Velvet cakes or any chocolate cake. I sometimes use it to fill in between the layers, and use another frosting on the outside.
- Cook flour and milk until it forms a stiff paste. Don't undercook! Stir constantly while it's cooking. Remove from heat and cool.
- In mixer bowl, cream butter, sugar, and vanilla.
- Add the completely cooled milk and flour mixture, beating until it looks like whipped cream.
- Spread on cooled cake.
LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE this frosting!!! I'm not a buttercream frosting fan, and this is exactly the type of thing I have been looking for!!!
Delicious frosting! Very fluffy, and it stays soft and its not overly sweet. I have used this twice now, and it is replacing the old buttercreme recipe I've used for years.
I love the flavor and the texture of this. I wound up adding another half teaspoon of vanilla so that it would be a bit more obvious.
