Vanilla Frosting




A soft, less sweet vanilla frosting.


Vanilla Frosting


Vanilla Frosting

1 cup Non-Dairy Milk

1/4 cup All-Purpose Flour

1 tsp Vanilla Extract

1/2 cup Margarine

1/2 cup Shortening

1 cup Granulated Sugar


Whisk together the milk and flour. In a pot over, medium heat, cook (stirring continuously) until mixture becomes a thick roux. Remove from heat and allowing to cool completely (I cool in the refrigerator to speed things up).

When roux has cooled, add vanilla and beat until smooth. Set aside.

Beat together margarine and shortening. Add sugar and beat until light and fluffy (about 2 minutes). Add cooled roux mixture and beat until thoroughly combined (3-4 minutes). Remember to scrape the sides of the bowl periodically.

Makes enough to frost an 8-inch, 2 layer cake.
