Seven Minute Frosting

If you’re in search of an all-time favorite frosting and has endured time then look at the Seven-Minute Frosting. It dates to the beginning of 1900 There’s no substitute for this fluffy and light marshmallow-like confection. In terms of texture and taste There’s not a frosting out can compare to it. For a frosting that’s made on the stove the process is slightly different from other frostings, also. (But don’t let this make you believe that it’s hard. Your grandmother can handle it and you should too.)

Seven minute Frosting should be prepared using a double boiler on the stove, however in the absence of an electric double-boiler, then a bowl that is heat-resistant placed on top of a pan of simmering water is well. All you need to do is combine the ingredients such as sugar, water egg whites and cream of tartar and salt, in a bowl. You then mix it using the aid of an electric blender for 30 seconds. After that, you place the bowl on top of the simmering water in a pan (but it must not touch the water as it could get too hot) and continue to beat for the aforementioned seven minutes.

The mixture will be thick and shiny. Remove it from the oven and add a bit of vanilla and continue beating for another one or two minutes. (So in reality, it takes slightly longer than that, however that’s fine.) It is possible to use lighter corn syrup in lieu of tartar cream if you want, one tablespoon of corn syrup is enough and you can also adjust how much vanilla you use according to your preference.

This is a frosting that you would like to create and apply on the day you want to serve your cake because it’s likely to disintegrate and will sink in the cake, if it is left over a long time. Also, you should frost your baked items as soon as you’ve completed making the frosting since it will harden and hard to spread quickly.

With its meringue-like or marshmallow-like texture The with its marshmallow-like texture, Minute Frosting is one that’s suitable for spreading however, it’s not suitable for piping. It adds an incredibly sweet and fluffy flavor to cakes it is atop, and it’s something that everyone who bakes should try at at least once. (But we’re able to guarantee that it’s delicious enough that you’ll be tempted to keep it when you’ve made your first attempt.)
