I have used this frosting on my grandmother's carrot cake for 40 years. It is a not-too-sweet frosting that freezes well. So make a double batch. This is a MUST try frosting. You will NOT be disappointed, I promise!! Only ½ cup sugar in the entire batch, makes this a healthier alternative frosting.

How to Make Tillie's White Sauce Frosting


  1. In sauce pan: stir flour and milk. Cook till thick. Cool completely.
  2. Combine shortening and oleo well. Add sugar and cream mixture with hand mixer for 4 minutes.
  3. Add sugar combo to cooled white sauce mixture and add vanilla.
  4. BEAT!!! till sugar is dissolved completely. This will take a while, perhaps 5 minutes. I have never timed this. Taste and you will not feel any sugar grandules.
  5. This will freeze well. I make a double batch for a layer cake and a single batch for a 9x13 cake.
    It is so light and smooth and so little sugar.
