7-Minute Brown Sugar Frosting

  • 1 1/2 cups brown sugar
  • 2 large egg whites(1/2 cup "Just Whites" pasteurized from carton works great)
  • 6 tablespoons water
  • dash salt
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla or vanilla bean paste
Add brown sugar, egg whites, water, and salt in bowl of standing mixer. Put on top of double boiler over boiling water.  Hold bowl steady using an oven mitt(no burns!).  Beat sugar and egg mixture with whisk constantly until mixture is hot to the touch and starts to thicken.  Remove from heat and position bowl in stand mixer with whisk attachment.  Whip on high until mixture forms strong peaks and is dramatically lighter in color.  Add vanilla.  Continue beating until frosting is thick enough to spread.  Makes enough to frost a 2 layer cake.
