Buttercream Frosting

So smooth and yummy… and just waiting to be customized to your liking. First time though, I used Almond extract…

(original recipe “Best Buttercream Frosting” from All Recipes but I made some clarifications)


  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 4 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract (or any other extract)


  1. In small saucepan cook flour and milk until it thickens considerably, stirring constantly. Cool to room temperature. [I kept putting it in the freezer to cool it faster.]
  2. With an kitchen aid mixer, paddle attachment, beat butter and sugar until fluffy (about 5 minutes to get the sugar to melt in).
  3. Beat both mixtures together on high speed until fluffy and smooth (about 5-10 minutes). Add vanilla and beat until combined. Refrigerate for about 1/2 hour, until it is of spreading consistency.
