Whenever I make Spaghetti Carbonara, I am always left with 4 egg whites, so I have been looking for a receipe, other than meringue (as MadDad doesnt like then) for quite a while.
Finally whilst looking through some old books came across a recipe for an easy egg white cakee that I wrote down an age ago (when I used to rip out pages of magazines and buy food magazines, which means it was pre children). I do not know the source of this recipe, so can not quote it , sorry.
- 6 eggs whites
- 250 g caster sugar
- 160 g plain flour
- 1 heaped Tbsp cornflour
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 100 g melted butter slightly cooled
- vanilla extract
Whisk the egg whites with 2 tbsp of the caster sugar until thick.
Mix the rest of the sugar with flour, corn flour and baking powder, then sift into the egg mixture and fold in gently.
Finally fold in cool melted butter and vanilla extract.
Pour the batter into a buttered bundt-form and bake in a pre-heated 180 C oven for 30 minutes.
Cool slightly before turning out of the cake tin.
It makes quite a dense cake, but we love it. What is your favourite recipe for using up egg whites?
