The Monday Recipe Blog

Hello - hope you are staying nice and cool this summer!  Here is another Lois Elaine recipe for you....

This blog features Lois Elaine Mueller's recipes every Monday. Lois' heyday was in the 1950's and 1960's, and her children swear she was the best cook that ever lived. Many baby boomers will remember these mouth-watering recipes, and these dishes are just as tasty today as they were in the sixties.

In the 1950's and 60's people didn't get their cake frosting from a can - they made it from scratch.  And that's the way serious cooks still do it.  I've published a few of Lois Elaine's frosting recipes in the past few months, and here is another one for a vanilla frosting. The recipe card notes that this comes from Lois Elaine's sister, Clarice....

Lois Elaine's Frosting:

1 c. butter
1 c. sugar
1 egg white, beaten
1 t. vanilla
2/3 c. milk

Cream the butter and sugar. Add egg white and vanilla and beat well. Scald milk and add that to the mix, slowly.  Beat well.
