Old-Fashioned Vanilla Frosting made without Powdered Sugar
  • ½ cup milk
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • pinch of salt
  • ¾ cup sugar (add up to ½ cup extra sugar if you want it on the thick side)
  • ½ cup (1 stick) salted butter, softened
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  1. Whisk milk, flour, and salt together in a saucepan over medium heat. Keep stirring until the mixture gets very thick and bubbly.
  2. Remove from heat and let cool to room temperature.
  3. In a mixing bowl using an electric mixer beat sugar and butter together until smooth and creamy. Beat in the cooled flour mixture until it is light and fluffy. Beat in the vanilla.
  4. *Note* If you want it to be thicker you can add more sugar. This recipe is very forgiving and if you want it a really thick consistency keep adding sugar to it.
