Sensational 7-Minute Frosting KitchenAid
If you are looking for a new frosting to try, this sensational 7-minute frosting KitchenAid is a great option. It is full of flavor and has a lovely light and fluffy texture. Whether for cakes, cookies, or brownies, it makes a great addition.
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 2 egg whites
- 1/4 cup granulated sugar
- 3/4 cup light corn syrup
- 1 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
Separate Egg Whites - In a small bowl, separate the egg whites and egg yolks. Save the egg yolks for another use.
Beat Salt and Egg Whites - Using your electric mixer, beat the salt and egg whites. Beat until the egg whites become frothy.
Add in the Sugar - Gradually add in the sugar, beating about one tablespoon in at a time. Beat until the mixture is smooth and glossy.
Add in the Corn Syrup - Add the corn syrup into the frosting, just a little bit at a time. Beat the mixture until firm peaks form.
Fold in Vanilla - Carefully using a rubber spatula, fold in the vanilla. Use frosting immediately or place it in the fridge.
Store your 7-minute frosting in the fridge in an airtight container. It can last for up to 2-3 days when properly stored. It can sit at room temperature for up to a day, but anytime longer than that it should be kept in the fridge.
Due to its light consistency, it is not recommended to freeze 7-minute frosting. Since it is a no-cook egg frosting, it will not keep its texture well if it has been frozen.
If desired, you can make the no-cook seven-minute frosting chocolate. Simply add three teaspoons of cooled, melted chocolate to the frosting. Carefully use a rubber spatula to incorporate the chocolate into the frosting.
Be sure to keep your 7-minute frosting in a cool area out of the heat and direct sunlight. It does not hold up well in hot temperatures and can melt. Store your frosted cake in a cool, dry area.
This frosting is a bit hard to spread, but it is great for piping. It looks especially beautiful when piped onto cupcakes, creating an elegant look.
