Double Boiler Brown Sugar Frosting

  • 2 1/4 cups brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • Few grains salt
  • 5 tablespoons water
  • 2 egg whites, unbeaten
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup chopped nuts
Stir brown sugar, baking powder, salt, water and egg whites together in top of double boiler; place over boiling water and beat with electric or rotary beater until frosting will peak. Remove from heat, add flavoring and nuts, and spread on cooled cake.

Granulated Sugar:
Prepare the same as above, substituting 2 cups granulated sugar for the brown, and using 6 tablespoons water instead of 5.

Eight cut marshmallows may be added to either of the above, just before removing from the fire.
