Ermine Butter cream (or Flour Butter cream)

Even though the name is very fancy the product is very simple. This is a variant of the regular butter cream. Personally I don’t like the texture of the regular butter cream because of its grittiness. But the ermine butter cream has a very light, smooth and fluffy texture like the whipped cream. This butter cream combines flour and milk with sugar to form a pudding like mixture first which is the secret to the smoothness of the cream. So let us check out how it is done.
