7-Minute Frosting

11 Jan

I use this frosting on coconut cake and carrot cake. It has a light texture and flavor that is perfect for rich cakes.


4 egg whites

2 cups sugar

1/2 cup water

2 tsp vanilla


Pour water into a 3-1/2 quart saucepan over medium-high heat; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium, and simmer. Combine first 3 ingredients in a 3 quart heatproof bowl; beat at low-speed with a hand mixer until blended. Place bowl over simmering water, beat at high speed 7 minutes or until soft peaks form; remove from heat. Add vanilla. Beat to spreading consistency(3 to 5 minutes). Use immediately.


Makes 4-1/2 cups
