This sweet, fluffy icing, known as a seven-minute frosting, has been a favorite among bakers since the 1930s. Its texture is similar to meringue.

Ingredients:

  • 4 egg whites
  • 1 1/3 cups sugar
  • 1/2 cup light corn syrup
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup sweetened shredded coconut

Directions:

In the bowl of an electric mixer, using a handheld whisk, beat together the egg whites, sugar, corn syrup and salt just until combined, about 30 seconds. Place the bowl over but not touching simmering water in a saucepan and whisk until the sugar dissolves and the mixture is hot, 2 to 3 minutes.

Set the bowl on the mixer fitted with the whisk attachment and beat on medium speed for 3 minutes. Add the vanilla and beat until the outside of the bowl is cool and stiff peaks form 5 to 7 minutes more. Using a rubber spatula, fold in the coconut just until incorporated.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice and light but hard to spread Made this to top a bundt cake in which the top 1/4 was left in the pan. I had some troubles with the cooling part suspect bc I used a ceramic bowl and it retained heat longer. Way more than 7 minutes. Ended up having to transfer to another bowl to cool faster. It doesn’t have a the coconut flavor I was looking for but suppose I could’ve used coconut flavoring instead of vanilla. Also it was quite sweet so unsweetened coconut could probably be substituted. It was very hard to spread especially when trying to fix a cake in pieces. That being said it does have a nice flavor and lightness. Good alternative to butter creams. I would make again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect every time! I have made this frosting recipe many times and each time it comes out perfect. I will also switch the extract flavor as needed if I want vanilla etc. As a rule, I don't make this frosting in the summer when it's hot and humid. This frosting is amazing!!!
