I posted this in the recipe section, but hardly anyone goes there, it seems! I need help!
I have never used a recipe for icing that included eggs, but to make what I need, I'm going to have to do so. These are the ingredients:
3 cups sugar, divided
3/4 cup milk
1 large egg, lightly beaten
1/2 cup butter or margarine, cut into pieces
1 pinch salt
Part of the recipe states," Cook entire mixture over medium heat, stirring constantly, until candy thermometer registers 235* (about 15-20 minutes)." Now, if I do this properly, will that mean that the egg is to a temp where I don't have to worry about anyone getting ill from it?
This seems more like a candy recipe than an icing recipe?
But yes your egg will have been neutered of bacteria by that temperature.
Thank you! And, yes, it is supposed to be very sweet and rich.
Is this a cake icing? Do you re-melt it and pour it over your stuff. It would seem like it would set up like a divinity or something. Let me know how you do with it.
This looks like the kind of icing on a german chocolate cake....gooey.
Oooh, caramel mmmmmmmmmm
