Brown Sugar Boiled Icing


Yield: 4 servings

  • 1 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 2 egg whites (make sure no part of yolk is in it)
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla (or a little more)


Boil together sugar and water until soft ball forms when tested in small amount of cold water. Beat egg whites stiff and gradually add syrup in a steady stream beating constantly, until frosting holds shape. Add salt and vanilla.


My Mom used to make this for chocolate cake and us kids could hardly wait 'til supper was over and we could all have a nice big piece. Yummmm!
