Cooking Time

25 minutes

Makes

12 cupcakes

Ingredients

3/4 cup (175 mL) Naturegg™ Simply Egg Whites™, at room temperature, well shaken
1/2 tsp (2 mL) each cream of tartar and vanilla extract
1/4 tsp (1 mL) salt
3/4 cup (175 mL) granulated sugar, divided
1/2 cup  (125 mL) cake and pastry flour

Directions

1. Preheat oven to 180°C (350°F).  Line a 12-cup muffin pan with large paper liners. Place the egg whites, cream of tartar, vanilla and salt in a large, nonreactive bowl. Use an electric mixer on high to beat the egg whites until foamy; still beating, gradually add 1/2 cup (125 mL) of the sugar, one spoonful at a time, until stiff peaks form.

2. Whisk the flour with the remaining sugar. Gently fold the flour mixture into the beaten egg whites, adding in two additions. Spoon batter into prepared cups and smooth tops. Tap the bottom of the pan on the counter to remove air bubbles.

3. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until golden and the tops spring back when lightly touched. Transfer the pan to a cooling rack; cool completely. Run a thin knife around the edge of each cupcake to release.

Tips

•   Garnish cupcakes with whipped cream and fresh, seasonal berries.

•   To make larger cupcakes, use a lined, jumbo, 6-cup muffin pan and bake for an additional 5 to 10 minutes.
