Basic Granulated Sugar Icing

1 review, 5 star(s). 100% would make again

Ready in 1h

An alternative icing that can be made with granulated sugar if you lack confectioners sugar


1/2 cup milk
3 tbsp flour
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup butter or margarine
1 tsp vanilla extract

Original recipe makes 1 Servings



Heat milk and flour over low heat, until very thick. Let cool and set aside.

Cream together sugar and butter

(Alternatively use 1/4 cup butter and 1/4 cup shortening, and cream all three together)

Add cooled milk and flour mixture, mix thoroughly until whip cream consistency

Add vanilla, and mix thoroughly

The result is VERY sweet, but works when you have no confectioners sugar. Should have no crunchiness or gritty/grainy feeling.
