The things that we love tell us what we are.–Thomas Aquinas
I found this recipe in an old recipe box I have held onto for decades. Use it for carrot cake frosting or orange cake frosting or whatever else you want.
- Rind of 1 orange, grated
- Rind of 1/2 lemon, grated
- 1/4 cup orange juice
- 3 cups powdered sugar
- 1 egg yolk
- 3 tablespoons butter, softened
- 2 teaspoons lemon juice
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
Add grated orange and lemon rinds to orange juice. Let stand 10 minutes. Strain. Set aside. Combine powdered sugar, egg yolk, butter, lemon juice and salt. Stir in orange juice to desired consistency. Beat until smooth. Yields frosting for one 9″ x 13″ cake.
