I used this recipe as the final touch on the Golden Raisin Drop Buns – and it was delicious!

I wasn’t sure how I’d like it, as I hadn’t yet made a glaze using flour and granulated sugar. I’m pleased that it turned out so yummy~

I did up the amount of vanilla and to be upfront — I changed the name, almost entirely.

It is listed in the vintage cookbook as a frosting. But I knew immediately that the name would never do. It was much to thin.

So I decided it was icing.

But, it was even too thin for that.

It is very much a glaze. So here we are. The perfect glaze to top the drop buns!

I hope you try it and let me know what you think in the comments below!

  • 1 Cup milk
  • 3 Tbsp all purpose flour
  • ½ Cup butter
  • ½ Cup shortening
  • 1 Cup granulated sugar
  • 1 Tbsp vanilla


  • In medium pot, over low-medium heat mix the flour and milk together
  • Stir and cook until thick
  • Allow to cool
  • Mix in butter and shortening, beat togehter
  • Mix in sugar and vanilla
  • Beat on high speed
  • Continue until sugar is dissolved then continue to beat for one minute


This recipe does say to "beat until fluffy" after the butter and shortening are added.  The fluffy stage never happened for me.  But if it does for you - then maybe it could be used as a frosting.
If it doesn't, it still makes an excellent glaze.
