Made it last night. Absolutely perfect. Definitely saving as a winner, especially because I generally don't keep confectioner's sugar in the house - and with this recipe, who needs it?
The whole milk and flour thickened quickly over high heat (stirring constantly), and cooled quickly sitting on my air conditioner vent (I'm sure fridge would have equally sufficed).
I softened the butter first by sitting it (in its paper) on the hot stove that was baking the cake - this made a mess, so I plopped the butter (no paper) in the mixing bowl and microwaved for 15-20 seconds. Creamed butter, sugar and vanilla all together using the electric hand mixer for about 6-7 mins total (kept having to stop to tend to other food preparations). Added cold flour/milk mixture in halves, mixing for 3-4 mins each time per JustMe's direction. The extra mixing seems long, but it does make the icing lighter, fluffier, yummier.
And wow - the icing was amazingly perfect and was more than enough for the chocolate cake I'd baked in a 13x9" pan - have about 1 cup leftover; we'll see how it holds up in the fridge and can be used for something else...
Yum! Thanks for a perfect white icing with no confectioners sugar mess, Carol!!
