10 Minute Frosting

I used this frosting recipe for the Angel Food cake.  I tested the recipe once, before using it on the cake, because I had never made 7 minute frosting.  All the recipes say to beat the frosting for 7 minutes, but this frosting actually took 10 minutes.  I timed it. :-)

2 egg whites
1 1/2 cups sugar
1/3 cup cold water
1 1/2 tsp light corn syrup
1 tsp vanilla extract

Mix together all ingredients, except for the vanilla, in medium sized pot.  Place over boiling water, and beat on high for 10 minutes, or until the frosting has marshmallow creme consistency.  Remove from boiling water,  and mix in vanilla.  

To make this frosting a double boiler is needed, and I do not have one.  So I just used two pots, one that kind of fit on the top of the other.  It worked okay, but it would have been much easier with a double boiler.

I doubled the recipe for the Angel Food cake, and that way we had a lot left over to just eat plain. :-)
