Recipe for Cooked Frosting

I used to have a recipe for cooked frosting. The base of flour and milk was cooked to a thick paste. As this cooled, equal parts of butter and shortening along with some sugar, a bit of vanilla, and a dash of salt was whipped until light and fluffy. Then the cooled paste was folded in. It was terrific because it was not too sweet, could be used to decorate cakes, and was very smooth. Thank you!

Recipe for Cooked Frosting

7 minute frosting. (It's so good you want to eat it with a spoon!)

  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar or 1 tablespoon white corn syrup
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract

Place sugar, cream of tartar or corn syrup, salt, water, and egg whites in the top of a double boiler. Beat with a handheld electric mixer for 1 minute. Place pan over boiling water, being sure that boiling water does not touch the bottom of the top pan. (If this happens, it could cause your frosting to become grainy.) Beat constantly on high speed with electric mixer for 7 minutes. Beat in vanilla.
