Cream Filling Sweet
This cream filling is great for filling cupcakes or donuts. You can make ahead of time, and refrigerate till ready to use, just let it come back to room temperature for easy filling!
Cream filling sweet
3 tablespoon all-purpose flour
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Whisk together the flour and milk and cook in a small saucepan over medium heat until thick. This will only take a few minutes. Stir continuously to prevent the mixture from clumping and do not bring all the way to a boil. When thickened (consistency will be that of a thin pudding), strain with a mesh strainer into a small bowl, cover with plastic wrap and let cool completely to room temperature.
When the milk mixture is cool, cream the butter and sugar together in a medium bowl until light. Add in the milk/flour mixture and vanilla extract and beat at high speed with an electric mixer for 7 minutes, until light and fluffy.
Post script: Joan passed away in her sleep on October 22, 2015. She went to bed feeling nauseous (which is one of the signs of heart attacks in women) and never woke up. Please learn the signs of heart attack in women (they are different than for men) and if you have high blood pressure or family history of heart disease, don’t brush off nausea as just the flu. Joan made it very clear that she wanted her work to continue in the event of her death so her family is working to keep Joan’s dream alive. In the days following her death, Joan’s fellow bloggers started a twitter campaign #ChocolateForJoan and #chocolateeverydamnday. We hope you’ll join us in honoring Joan’s memory by having chocolate every day.
