Divinity Frosting



Divinity Frosting is a low-fat, light and fluffy boiled frosting based on egg whites

It is based on a sugar syrup that you pour into stiffly beaten egg white.

It ends up tasting like a homemade marshmallow cream.

It can be flavoured (e.g. raspberry, chocolate, etc.) and coloured.

Divinity Frosting won't stand up to long storage; it will soak into the cake after a day or two. It was invented in an era when a cake on a farmhouse table did well to make it unscathed until dinner time.

Cooking Tips

3 cups sugar
1 teaspoon light corn syrup
1 1/3 cups boiling water
4 egg whites, stiffly beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla

Will do tops and sides of 3 x 9 inch (7 1/2 x 23 cm) layers.

Beat egg whites in good-sized boil till stiff; set aside.

Combine sugar, corn syrup and boiling water in a saucepan. Over low heat, cooking the mixture. Stir frequently. Sugar should dissolve and the mixture should boil. Continue cooking until soft ball stage is reached.

Pour this syrup in a fine, slow stream into egg white, beating constantly as you do. Add vanilla. Beat until stiff again.

Spread on cake.

    Only sour pusses would let this day go by without celebrating it. Have something with lemon juice in it -- a glass of lemonade, tea with lemon, lemon bread, a muffin with Lemon Curd spread on it, or a meal with lemon juice in it.
