6 people made this

This icing takes a little more trouble to make but is well worth it. Brown sugar, maple syrup (genuine if possible!) and walnuts are a great combination.


Serves: 12 

  • 2 egg whites
  • 1 1/4 cups (200g) packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup (85ml) maple syrup
  • 3 tablespoons cold water
  • 1/8 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 1/4 cup chopped walnuts

Preparation:20min  ›  Ready in:20min 

  1. Place egg whites, brown sugar, maple syrup, water and cream of tartar in the top of a double boiler over boiling water. Beat with a mixer until icing has a good spreading consistency and will stand in peaks. Remove from heat.
  2. Ice cake. Sprinkle walnuts on top.

This could be better - it didn't thicken at all, so could only be drizzled over the cake as a very sweet sauce. - 30 Dec 2015
