Vintage No-Cook Mashmallow Frosting Recipe

Wow...I can't get over how many vintage recipes I have been finding in great aunties box! There are hundreds upon hudreds of them...they are all tattered, torn, yellowed & faded from being in storage for years.

Great Auntie had a habit of cutting recipes out of newspapers, magazines & from paper advertisments and tucking them away in this box. I am posting several of them onto my cooking & recipe blog as a way to preserve them for generations to come!

This vintage recipe is from the maker's of Karo Syrup.

No-Cook Marshmallow Frosting Recipe

1/4 tsp. salt
2 egg whites
1/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 c. Karo Syrup, Red Label
1 1/4 tsp. vanilla extract

Add salt to egg whites & beat with an electric mixer or rotary beater until mixture forms soft peaks. Gradually add sugar, 1 Tbsp. at a time, beating until smooth & glossy. Slowly add Karo Syrup, beating thoroughly after each addition, until firmly peaked. Fold in vanilla extract. If desired, tint with food coloring.

Yields: Will frost two 9-inch layers or one 10" tube cake.
