    About this recipe: A creamy meringue icing for the American classic Lady Baltimore cake. Use sweet sherry instead of vanilla for a more 'adult' flavour, with more zing.

    Ingredients
    Serves: 16 

    • 400g caster sugar
    • 80ml water
    • 4 tablespoons golden syrup
    • 1/8 teaspoon salt
    • 4 egg whites
    • 1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

    Method
    Prep:10min  ›  Cook:20min  ›  Ready in:30min 

    1. In medium saucepan measure in sugar, water, golden syrup and salt over medium heat. Stir to dissolve. Cook to soft ball stage (115 degrees C on a sugar thermometer) without stirring (it should fall from spoon in a thin thread).
    2. Beat egg whites and cream of tartar until stiff peaks form; do this shortly before sugar mixture has reached the soft ball stage. When ready, pour sugar mixture in a thin stream over stiff egg whites, being careful to beat continuously the whole time. Add vanilla and beat until the right spreading consistency is achieved.
