An awesome filling from a TOH recipe for "Cream Cake Dessert" by Peggy Stott. The cake wasn't anything special, but the cream is incredible! She suggests filling a yellow cake with it for a potluck, instead of icing it. Cooking time includes cooling.
- add 1 cup sugar
- add 1/2 cup butter
- add 5 tablespoons flour
- add 1/2 teaspoon salt
- add 1/2 cup shortening
- add 1 teaspoon vanilla
- add 1 cup milk
- Combine flour and milk.Bring to a boil and stir until thickened.Cool completely.
- Cream everything else with an electric mixer.Beat in the cooled milk until the sugar is dissolved.
- Use as you desire.It tastes alot like a hostess cake filling, and would go great in chocolate cupcakes.
