7 Minute Frosting

Marilyn V
Edited on Apr 06, 2010

I can't remember what cake Grandma put this frosting on but, the frosting must have been all I cared about.


2 egg whites(1/4 cup)
1 1/2 cups sugar
1/4 tsp cream of tarter
1/3 cup water
1 tsp vanilla


combine egg whites, sugar, cream of tarter, and water in the top of a double boiler. Beat on high speed for 1 minute with mixer. Place overboiling water (water should not touch bottom of upper pan). Beat on high speed 7 minutes. Remove pan from boiling water, add vanilla. Beat for 2 more minutes. this frosts a 13 x 9 inch pan.

Not a NESTLÉ®-tested recipe.
