Old fashioned 7 Minute Frosting that tastes like marshmallow cream. A light and fluffy frosting for just about any cake!

What is your favorite frosting? Does the type of frosting you use depend on what cake you make? I’m a white cake white frosting girl at heart. I won’t turn down any slice of cake, but white cake gets me every single time.

We’re sharing a vintage recipe that is all throughout my grandma’s old cookbooks…7 Minute Frosting. The total time may be a little more than 7 minutes, but the name is intriguing. And the texture and taste? Amazing and meringue-like. Let’s make this.

What is 7 minute frosting?
Seven minute frosting is a meringue like fluffy frosting without oil or butter. Because it doesn’t have those, it is a low fat frosting. It’s base is egg whites, sugar and water…and you’ll be amazed how this frosting comes together.

7-minute frosting is similar to a Swiss meringue in that it has eggs and sugar heated in a double boiler over simmering water and whipped to a glossy meringue.

What does it taste like? If you love marshmallows, you’ll go crazy for this frosting recipe! We think it tastes just like marshmallow fluff, minus some of the stickiness.
