This recipe is for ‘old school’ cupcake filling, similar to (but better than) Hostess. This was handed down from an elderly lady to my mother a million years ago, passed to me 15 years ago, and now, by popular demand, I’m passing it on to you. Mom made this as my birthday treat to take to school when I was a kid, and it was always hard to share them! It may taste a little ‘Crisco-ish’ if tried with just a spoon, but once it gets in the cupcake it is magic!! ENJOY!!
- 2/3 c. Crisco
- 1/2 c. sugar
- 1/3 c. evaporated milk
- 1/4 t. salt
- 1 t. vanilla (clear or brown)
(1/4 c powdered sugar – seperate)
- Beat all ingredients (except powdered sugar) with electric mixer for 10 minutes. Add powdered sugar and beat one minute longer. Make sure cupcakes are completely cooled before filling or it will melt and become separated.
