Seven Minute Frosting- -Fluffy and fabulous! An easy frosting recipe that requires zero powdered sugar and is a great alternative to your basic buttercream.
No buttercream here! This fluffy frosting is more of the texture of a meringue, but, can still be used on any of your favorite baked goods.
What Ingredients are Needed?
- Egg whites
- Light corn syrup
- White sugar
Egg Whites: Your egg whites will whip to a greater volume when they are at room temperature.
How to Make:
Note: Traditionally, seven minute frosting is made while whipping eggs whites with the corn syrup in a bowl over simmering water. While this method is different, you will still achieve a whipped meringue/fluffy frosting.
- First, in a saucepan, heat corn syrup with sugar. Continue until sugar is fully dissolved. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla.
- In a mixing bowl with a whisk attachment, whip the egg whites and salt until soft peaks form. Then, stream in the warm syrup while continuing to whip the egg whites.
- Continue whipping until stiff peaks form. You want them to be shiny white in color and the frosting should not drip off the whisk.
- Use the frosting immediately…it sets quickly!
- Keep any leftover frosting in an airtight, covered container in the refrigerator. Use within 2-3 days.
