7 Minute frosting consists of egg whites, cream of tartar, vanilla, sugar and water. It is cooked over a double boiler and beaten until stiff peaks form- usually 7 minutes, hence the name! Paula Deen has a good recipe that can be found here http//www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/paula-deen/7-minute-frosting-recipe/index.html Also on this page there is an icon to go to a GREAT coconut cake by Alton Brown. It is a really good one to try.
Hope you enjoy!
