"For a heavenly light and fluffy frosting, you can't top this cooked version," jots Georgie Bohmann of West Allis, Wisconsin. "You'll definitely want to lick the beaters after whipping up this modern variation of the classic 7-minute frosting."
- 4 egg whites
- 1-1/3 cups sugar
- 1 tablespoon water
- 1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- In a heatproof bowl of a stand mixer, whisk egg whites, sugar, water and cream of tartar until blended. Place over simmering water in a large saucepan over medium heat. Whisking constantly, heat mixture until a thermometer reads 160°, about 2-3 minutes.
- Remove from heat; add vanilla. With the whisk attachment of a stand mixer, beat on high speed until stiff glossy peaks form, about 7 minutes. Use immediately. Store frosted cake, uncovered, in refrigerator. Yield: 4 cups.
