We love this creamy frosting, especially on a chocolate cake.


  • 1 egg white
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1/3 cup butter
  • 2/3 cup white shortening(I use Crisco)
  • 3/4 cup scalded milk
  • 1 t. vanilla


Scald milk. Pour into egg white, shortenings, and sugar. Beat until it makes frosting. If milk is too hot, it will take longer, but will make. It might looked curdled, but keep beating with mixer. Add vanilla
