Fluffy White Frosting aka 7 Minute Frosting

This is the frosting my mom made a lot through my childhood years.  This frosting is very fluffy and marshmallow like.  The recipe calls for egg whites and they get cooked when the hot syrup is poured into them.  This frosting is also great on angel food cake.  -Kristin

1 cup sugar
1/3 cup water
1/3 teaspoon cream of tarter
1/3 cup egg whites
1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla

  • In a saucepan combine the sugar, water and cream of tarter.  Heat to 242 degrees.  
  • While syrup is cooking beat the egg whites until stiff enough to hold a point.
  • Pour hot syrup very slowly in a steady, thin stream into stiffly beaten egg whites; beating constantly.
  • Add the vanilla.
  • Beat until frosting holds shape.  About 7 minutes :)!!
