CREAMY COCOA ICING FOR FAVORITE CAKE:
Mix together thoroughly:
2 tbsp. flour 3 tbsp. cocoa 1/2 c. sugar 1/4 tsp. salt Blend in 1 c. milk
Cook slowly over direct heat for 8 to 10 minutes, stirring constantly until mixture is thickened and glossy. Blend in 1 teaspoon vanilla and 2 tablespoons butter. Cool icing slightly before spreading on the cooled cake. For extra glee: cover with nuts or small marshmallows.
