The Monday Recipe Blog
This blog features Lois Elaine Mueller's recipes every Monday. Lois' heyday was in the 1950's and 1960's, and her children swear she was the best cook that ever lived. Many baby boomers will remember these mouth-watering recipes, and these dishes are just as tasty today as they were in the sixties.
Moms in the 1960's made a lot of cakes, and they made a lot of frostings for those cakes. This blog has featured many of Lois Elaine's frosting recipes, and here is another one - Seven Minute Frosting.
Lois Elaine's Seven Minute Frosting:
2 egg whites
1 1/2 c. sugar
5 T. cold water
1 1/2 t. light corn syrup
1 t. vanilla extract
Put unbeaten egg whites, sugar, water and corn syrup in top of double boiler. Place over rapidly boiling water. Beat constantly with rotary egg beater for 7 to 10 minutes or until frosting will stand in peaks. Remove from heat; add vanilla, beat until thick enough to spread. Makes enough to fill and frost a two layer cake.
