Fluffy White Frosting

Carol Junkins


Many years ago , oh maybe 30yrs a neighbor gave me a recipe for the frosting she always used that I liked. She told me it was used in bakeries mostly. This frosting is not sweet, there is no butter in it and you need to cook the flour with the milk first and let it cool. I have used this for my chocolate cake for years.
My husband's B'day cake with coconut oil and toasted coconut on top!

How to Make Fluffy White Frosting


  • 1Into 5 scant tablespoons of flour, gradually blend 1 cup of milk, cook to a thick paste, stirring constantly and on a low heat.
  • 2Cool to lukewarm.
    Meanwhile cream 1 cup crisco with 1 cup of sugar and 1/2 teaspoon salt.
  • 3Add the cool paste and 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract, then beat till fluffy.

    I sometimes add coconut oil instead of vanilla, then toast about 1 cup of coconut to sprinkle on top.
    Or orange flavoring, with fresh oranges slice around the edge of the cake, well you get the idea!
    peppermint oil, crushed peppermint on top ~~
