Seven Minute Frosting!!!

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 name is intriguing, but the texture and taste? Amazing. Let’s make this!


  •  Half a liter of liquid milk.
  •  2 tablespoons of vanilla.
  •  A cup of powdered fine sugar.
  •  2 tablespoons of starch.
  •  2 eggs.



Mix milk, sugar, starch and vanilla together well in an electric mixer.

Add egg whites to the above and whisk well in an electric mixer.

The previously prepared mixture is placed in a saucepan over a quiet fire, and stirred continuously to obtain a thick consistency.

Add lemon juice to the above, and mix well to obtain cream.

Leave aside until use.
