  • 3 cups milk heated (3 mins in microwave will do)
  • 1 cup flour
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon



  • In a 3-qt saucepan, pour in heavy whipping cream and simmer 10-15 minutes on med-low heat until cream thickens slightly and looks shiny.
  • Whisk in 1/2 the flour. "Batter" may look more like dough.
  • Cook, stirring regularly, until thickened and butter appears.
  • As butter accumulates, pour off into small bowl. Repeat.
