Sinful Swiss Meringue Butter Cream

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup (4 oz) of egg whites
  • 1 cup (8 oz) of granulated sugar
  • 1 1/2 (12 oz) cup butter
  • 1 tsp of flavoring (I use 1/2 tsp van & 1/2 tsp almond)

Instructions

  1. Put eggs and sugar in your mixing bowl and beat with whisk until well combined. Put bowl over a hot bath on stove top and KEEP mixing until mixture is no longer grainy to the touch (aprox 3 min). When that’s done, take bowl to mixer using the balloon whisk on medium speed for 4 min. Replace ballon whisk for paddle. Slowly add your room temp butter in pieces and mix until smooth. Now add your extracts and (color optional-pref gel). You will notice it curd a bit aprox. 3 min into mixing, keep it on medium for another 3-4 min and it will be smooth & silky. Don’t get impatient it will turn out so good! Hope you enjoy.

I LOVE this recipe and get rave reviews on it. But what the heck do I do with the 5 dozen egg yolks I have after I make 4 or 5 batches to do a wedding cake??? I have a similar recipe that takes meringue powder but it has a bite to it.

to hotgranni174 I either freeze my egg yolks to use later, or combine them with pasturized egg whites. That way you can use like you would use a regular egg. Buy e /whites frozen 4 cartons per pkg at Costco. Or buy one carton at your supermarket. Hope you can use this suggestion

This is by far the best Meringue Butter Cream recipe Ive come across and its all I use anymore! Thank you so much!!

Well, I just made a batch and I wound up with it being runny. Does it need to be refrigerated to become more solid? What did I do wrong? I followed recipe exactly, even turning on the timer when needed.

I also tried this and found it too buttery for my taste. However, I loved the silky smooth texture, and the fact that it wasn't too sweet? Just curious, what would happen if you used 1/2 butter 1/2 crisco?

I used half butter & half margarine.I live in UK so crisco or shortening r very hard to find.& it taste better than the BC I normally use which taste sweeter. The Egg yolks,I made basic custards & make it into home made Ice cream.

I have been using this exact recipe but thought it tasted too much like a buttery cool whip, so I mixed in a little bit of regular buttercream and it is SO good. Filled a bridal shower cake with it and it got rave reviews!!
