Gooey meringue frosting that is great on spice cakes.
INGREDIENTS (for 1 servings):
- 2 egg whites
- 1 1/2 cups dark brown sugar
- 1/3 cup water
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Stir the unbeaten egg whites, sugar and water together in the top of a double boiler. Cook over briskly boiling water, beating with a rotary beater for 7 minutes or until frosting looks fluffy and holds a soft, gentle shape.
Remove from boiling water, add vanilla extract and continue beating until frosting holds definite peaks.
Spread between layers of cake and then frost the sides and top.
