I got this recipe from this website The frosting in the pics from the banana nut cupcakes (which I got from the same website) is not the cream cheese frosting I recommended, it was this frosting. It was pretty good but I think I’d like it better on my mom’s famous Pumpkin Muffins (I’ll post those later). Here’s the recipe 🙂
1 cup Milk
5 Tablespoons Flour
1 teaspoon Vanilla
1 cup Butter, barely room temperature
1 cup Granulated Sugar (not Powdered Sugar!)
Since the icing has 2 steps, I’d start it first. So in a small saucepan, whisk flour into milk and heat, stirring constantly, until it thickens. Remove from heat and let it cool to room temperature. (If you’re in a hurry, place the saucepan over ice in the sink for about 10 minutes or so until the mixture cools.)
While the cupcakes are in the oven, go back to the icing and cream the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. Add the vanilla to the cooled milk/flour mixture. Then add the cooled milk/flour/vanilla mixture and beat until it all combines and resembles whipped cream.
NOTE: The milk/flour/vanilla mixture MUST be cooled before you add it to the butter and sugar mixture.
I did really like it I think the cream cheese would be better on the banana cupcakes and this would be better on the pumpkin muffins 🙂
