Make your own light and fluffy marshmallow fluff at home with just four ingredients. It's perfect for a filing, a spread or to use to decorate cakes. You could also try my Marshmallow Cookie Sandwiches.
3 large egg whites - I purchased liquid egg whites in a carton, as I tend to waste the yolks otherwise
150g caster sugar
50g golden syrup
1/2 tsp vanilla essence
In a large glass bowl, add the egg whites, golden syrup, caster sugar and vanilla
Put the glass bowl over a pan of simmering water on low heat, being careful that the water does not touch the base of the bowl
Using an electric hand whisk, whip all the ingredients together until it's thick and opaque (this will take roughly 5-10 mins)
Remove the bowl from the heat and continue to whip on a higher speed until you get stiff peaks. You can continue to use the hand whisk or transfer to a stand mixer and let the mixer do all of the work (that's what I chose to do!)
Are you brave enough to hold the bowl over your head to check the marshmallow fluff is ready?
