  • 3/4 cup (185g) white sugar
  • 1/3 cup (75ml) golden syrup

  1. Combine the egg whites, sugar, golden syrup, water, cream of tartar and salt in the top of a double boiler over water that is at a hard boil.
  2. Start whisking right away with a beater until the mixture stands in stiff peaks.
  3. Remove from heat and add vanilla or your favourite flavouring and keep whisking until it is thick enough to spread easily.
