Nut and Fruit Filling and Frosting Recipe

  • 1 1/2 cups white sugar
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 cup chopped almonds
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh figs
  • 1/2 cup chopped raisins
  1. Bring sugar and water to a boil, without stirring, in a saucepan until syrup is 238 degrees F (114 degrees C) or until a small amount of syrup dropped in cold water forms a soft thread, 7 to 10 minutes.
  2. Slowly pour syrup over egg whites in a bowl; stir in vanilla extract and continue to beat until thick and cold. Add baking powder and beat until filling/frosting is thick enough to spread without running. Fold almonds, figs, and raisins into filling/frosting.
