Similar to Seven Minute Frosting - however, much better!!! Excellent when used with a devil's food cake.

  1. Beat egg whites until soft peaks are formed, then add a dash of salt and beat until firm peaks are formed. In a sauce pan or microwave, heat corn syrup until boiling. Slowly drizzle the corn syrup into the egg whites while beating at high speed. Once entirely incorporated, continue beating at high speed for approximately 6 to 7 minutes. Beat in vanilla.

I have been making seven-minute frosting for years. This recipe is so much easier and holds up better the next day without getting sugary. I measured the corn syrup in a measuring cup and boiled it in the microwave - couldn't have been easier, and no beating over the stove,

Very easy to make. I used this on a 2-layer Devil's Food cake. I, too, boiled the corn syrup in the microwave which worked perfectly. This recipe is a touch bland so I doubled the vanilla. Also, to add a bit of sweetness and flavor to the frosting, once the entire cake was frosted I grated a bar of dark chocolate and sprinkled/coated the top of the frosted cake with the shavings. It added a really decorative look and a great flavor!


I made the Devil's Food Cake I from this site and frosted it with this frosting for my mother-in law's birthday. It was a great combination. She had requested Seven Minute Frosting but it was very humid here the day I made it and I was afraid the frosting would not set up good. This frosting sets up very good even on a humid day! It is not very sweet but is good when spread over a rich chocolate cake.
