Here's something fun to do this weekend...
I just stumbled upon one of the greatest frosting recipes... ever! And, of course, I had to try it.
If you have a few minutes (and that's all it takes to make this) you should humor me and check it out. And if you have some chocolate cake handy... glob this on. It's just about the best darn thing ever.
In fact, it's called: "That’s the Best Frosting I’ve Ever Had!"
Here's what you need... and I'm sure you've got it in your kitchen. I did, so you must.
1 cup Milk
5 Tablespoons Flour
1 teaspoon Vanilla
1 cup Butter
1 cup Granulated Sugar (not Powdered Sugar!)
Bake your favorite chocolate cake and let it cool.
In a small saucepan, whisk flour into milk and heat, stirring constantly, until it thickens.
Remove from heat and let it cool to room temperature. (If you're in a hurry, and I was, you can place the saucepan over ice in the sink for about 10 minutes or so until the mixture cools.)
Stir in vanilla.
While the mixture is cooling, cream the butter and sugar together, on high, until light and fluffy. Then add the cooled milk/flour/vanilla mixture and beat until it all combines and resembles whipped cream.
Grab a spoon and taste this wonderful goodness. If there is any left after your taste test, spread it on a cooled chocolate cake.
I didn't even bother with the cake. I mean, why?
