Fluffy Apple Frosting

Fluffy Apple Frosting

A billowy delight, this recipe is a lighter, apple-flavored alternative to standard buttercream frosting.


about 4 cups frosting


  • 1/4 cup apple juice
  • 3/4 cup Domino® Quick Dissolve Superfine Sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 2 large egg whites
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract


In the top of a large double boiler or in a 2-quart stainless steel bowl, combine juice, sugar, cream of tartar, salt and egg whites.

Place over simmering water on low heat. Stir just until the sugar has dissolved.

With a rotary or electric hand mixer, whip until frosting increases in volume and forms peaks (about 7 minutes with rotary mixer; 5 with electric mixer). Remove bowl from water. Add vanilla and, if necessary, continue whipping until glossy and soft, billowy peaks form.

Frost cake and decorate frosting's surface by swirling with the back of a spoon.
