Makes: Frosting for one double or triple layer cake Total Time: 7 min
Category: Desserts Sub Category: Frostings/Fillings

what you need
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1 cup plus 2 Tbsp. sugar
  • 3 large egg whites
  • 1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 Tbsp flavored extract
make it
In large metal bowl, whisk together 1/3 cup water, sugar, egg whites, cream of tartar, and salt.

Set bowl over pan of barely simmering water and mix with handheld electric mixer at low speed. Gradually increase speed to high, beating until mixture holds stiff peaks, about 5 minutes.

Transfer bowl from pan to folded kitchen towel on counter and continue beating until mixture is cool and billowy, about 2 minutes more. Beat in extract.
Notes
Frosting can be made 4 hours ahead and chilled, covered.

My mother-in-law taught me to make this when I was first married in 1980! I thought it was pretty exotic then!
