Back in the day of no worries about excessive sugar, this was my "go to" frosting for a special occasion cake. It had fallen out of my repertoire of recipes until I was reminded of it this week. This frosting elevates a chocolate or coconut cake to a new level of goodness.

You can use it "as is" or garnish it with anything of your choosing. Enjoy.

How to Make HEAVENLY 7 MINUTE FROSTING (SALLYE)

Step-by-Step

  1. If you have a large double boiler, use it.

    If not, fill a heavy deep skillet about 1/3 full of water and place over medium high heat.
  2. In a heavy large saucepan, place the sugar, water, egg whites, salt and corn syrup and place pan in the water bath.

    Note: This recipe will triple in volume, so make sure your pan is large enough.
  3. IMPORTANT: THIS FROSTING NEEDS YOUR FULL TIME ATTENTION WHILE COOKING.
  4. Begin beating with hand held mixer on high speed and continue beating until well blended.
  5. When water begins to boil, turn heat to where water will just simmer.
  6. Continue beating constantly at high speed for about 7 minutes until mixture makes and retains firm peaks.

    Wipe down sides of pan if necessary - be sure and turn mixer off momentarily while you perform this task.
  7. When frosting retains firm peaks, remove from heat, add cream of tartar and vanilla and continue beating until well blended.

    Is your arm falling off yet? LOL
  8. Spread over cooled cake while frosting is still warm.

    Optional garnishes: Sprinkle coconut, chocolate curls over top, or drizzle chocolate sauce on it. I usually leave it plain except at Easter when I make a Coconut cake, dye some coconut green and make an Easter egg nest on top of the cake.
