Comment on this recipe

Ingredients

6 large egg yolks
2 cups maple syrup
2 cups butter, cut into pieces

Instructions

In a mixing bowl, beat yolks on high until mixture is light and fluffy, 3-5 minutes. In small saucepan, bring the syrup to a boil over medium heat for about 15 minutes. Remove the pan from the heat and add hot syrup by pouring down the side of bowl while continuing to beat with mixer. When syrup is blended (about 30 seconds), beat mixture until bowl is warm to touch, about 5-6 minutes. Add the butter, one piece at a time, and beat until the frosting is fluffy, about 4 minutes). Frost the cake.
