Recipe type: Dessert
Number of serving: 1 servings
Preparation time: 15 minutes
Cook time: 10 minutes
Ready in: 25 minutes
Difficulty: Very Easy


- 2 egg whites
- a pinch of salt
- 1 1/2 cups turbinado sugar
- 1/3 cup strong coffee
- 1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar


Step 1:

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.

Step 2:

Place the glass bowl on top of the saucepan, and continue beating with the mixer until stiff peaks form.

Step 3:

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.

Step 4:

Remove the frosting from the heat, and beat it until you reach the desired consistency (this won't take long at all.).

Step 5:

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.

Step 6:

Now you're ready to frost your cake.
