Polish Family Buttercream Frosting Recipe
- 1/4 cup flour
- 2/3 cup white sugar (not confectioners)
- 1 cup milk
- 1/2 lb. butter
- 1-2 tsp. vanilla
- Cream cheese (optional)
1. Cook 1/4 cup flour and 1 cup of milk on a low heat, whisking constantly until all lumps have disappeared and the mixture has turned to a thick paste. Set aside until fully cooled.
2. Cream 1/2 butter and 2/3 cup sugar until you have a smooth, creamy yellow whipped consistency. Add small teaspoons of paste and mix with the butter mixture until all the paste has been added. Add 1-2 tsp. of vanilla. The final texture should be lighter than traditional buttercream frosting and only moderately sweet.
3. Option: You can also add softened cream cheese at the end to change the flavor.
