    Orange Coconut Frosting

    Source of Recipe


    1 1/4 c granulated sugar
    2 egg whites
    1/4 c orange juice, fresh
    1 tb light corn syrup
    1 ts orange rind, grated
    pinch salt
    1 c coconut, shredded/unsweetened

    Heat the oven to 350 degrees F. Toast the coconut on a baking pan
    in the middle of the oven, shaking the pan occasionally for 10
    minutes. Let the coconut cool.

    In the bowl of a mixer, combine the granulated sugar, egg whites,
    orange juice, corn syrup, grated orange rind, and salt. Set the
    bowl over a saucepan containing 3 inches of boiling water, and
    whisk the mixture until it is hot and foamy. Return the bowl to
    the mixer and beat the frosting at high speed for 7 minutes, or
    until it is cool and holds stiff peaks. Makes about 3 cups.

    FOR COCONUT ANGEL FOOD CAKE, or your favorite cake, cover the sides
    and top with the orange frosting. Press the toasted coconut onto
    the sides of the cake.
