Valerie's Fluffy White Flour Frosting

Flour frosting??? you might say, but actually it's one of the best frostings.  
Not too sweet and light and fluffy. :)
Continuously whisk the flour and milk over medium heat.
Constant whisking is important for no lumps.  You do not want lumps, trust me.

Cooking the flour will result in something that looks like mashed potatoes.
It's sticky and comes together away from the sides.  

Mix the mixture for a minute or so to make sure there are no lumps.
Cover and refrigerate until cool.

Cream together the shortening, softened margarine and sugar.

Slowly add the cooled flour/milk mixture in little bits beating after each addition.
Continue to beat for 7-10 minutes until light and fluffy and all sugar is disolved.

Ha, don't laugh at my attempts at writing with a gel frosting.

  • cup milk
  • 1/2 cup shortening
  • 1/2 cup margarine
