Frostings without powdered sugar: fluffy coffee frosting

1 servings
15 min
10 min
Very Easy


Number of serving: 1
2 egg whites

a pinch of salt

1 1/2 cups turbinado sugar

1/3 cup strong coffee

1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar


  • Bring an inch or two of water to boil in the saucepan. Mix all the ingredients thoroughly in a glass bowl, using a hand-held electric mixer until well blended.
  • Place the glass bowl on top of the saucepan, and continue beating with the mixer until stiff peaks form.
  • This process supposedly takes about 7 minutes, but don't bother going by the clock. When you lift up the beaters , you should see stiff peaks remaining.
  • Remove the frosting from the heat, and beat it until you reach the desired consistency (this won't take long at all.).
  • If you are using water instead of coffee, add a teaspoon of flavoring such as vanilla or almond and beat until it's blended in.
  • Now you're ready to frost your cake.
