Seven-Minute Frosting

I just can’t do canned frosting. This is one of my favorites and really it’s so easy. I guess it’s not as fast as buying a can of frosting but it sure tastes a lot better!SEVEN-MINUTE FROSTING

Seven-Minute Frosting

  • 2 egg whites
  • 1 1/2 c. white sugar
  • 1/3 c. cold water
  • 1 1/2 tsp. light corn syrup
  • 1 tsp. vanilla

Put egg whites, sugar, water and syrup in top of double boiler. Beat until mixed well. Place over rapidly boiling water. Beat constantly with electric beater while it cooks for 7 minutes or until whites stand in peaks when beater is raised. Remove from heat. Add vanilla. Beat. Fills and frosts 2 layer cake, 8” or 9”.

It seems like making yummy things runs in your mom's family! ;) Those look so yummy... and I like seeing the recipe, too. I have very few frosting recipes- I usually go back to my standard (and favorite) butter/powdered sugar/milk frosting.
