Baking with egg whites - recipies wanted (not pav)

pyrogalf, Sep 15, 6:38am
I have a new fave choc chip biscuit recipe, which uses one egg and one egg yolk.I've been saving the whites but not sure what to do with them - I'm no good at pavs!I looked at angel food cake but it will be a while until I have enough egg whites for that!I have four egg whites so far - any ideas for nice cakes or slices that could help me use them up! Much appreciated :-)

I have never cooked this recipe but another poster posted the recipe after discovering how wonderful it was:

Annabel Langbein’s Strawberry Cloud Cake
150g plain sweet biscuits (made into fine crumbs)
1/2cup dessicated coconut
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
100g butter, melted
Mix altogether and line a 26-28cm spring form cake tin lined with baking paper.Refrigerate while preparing base.
2 egg whites, at room temperature
1 cup sugar
1 punnet strawberries
1 tbsp lemon juice
1 tsp vanilla extract
Place egg whites, sugar, sliced strawberries, lemon juice and vanilla in a clean dry bowl of an electric beater. Beat on high for 6-8 mins until mixture is very thick and fluffy and the sugar is dissolved. You should not feel any gritty sugar after this time. If you do beat for longer.
Spoon over chilled base, smooth top, cover with baking paper and freeze for at least 4 hours. Will keep in airtight container in freezer for up to a month.

Here is another recipe that I have never made, but saved from these boards. I'm sorry to the original poster because I never saved your name and now cannot attribute it to you:

300g Spreadable Cream Cheese – Cool
250g Cream Cheese – Room temperature
2 Lemons Rind
1 ½ cupBaileys Liqueur
½ cup Sugar
¼ cupWater
3 Egg Whites
Crunchy Chocolate Topping
½ cupDark Chocolate Bits
3 Tbspns Coffee Beans – finely ground
6 Tbspns Cream
• In a bowl blend spreadable Cream Cheese (mascarpone!), Cream Cheese and Lemon Rind
• Gradually work in the Baileys and set aside
• Put Sugar & Water into small saucepan over low heat and stir until Sugar dissolves
• Stop stirring and bring to a rapid boil, boiling until the syrup reaches soft ball stage, (see Cook's Tip, below). Remove from the heat.
• Beat the Egg Whites until stiff and then gradually beat in the Sugar sYrup, beating until you have a very thick and glossy meringue
• Fold the Egg White Meringue into the Cream Cheese and Bailey's mixture
• Pour into a 23 cm springform cake tin and freeze for 8 hours or overnight
• Place the Chocolate, Coffee and Cream together in a heat-proof bowl and melt in the microwave. Cool before pouring on top of the cheesecake. Return to the freezer for 2 hours.
• Allow to stand in the fridge for 20 minutes before serving.
• **Best used within 1 week.
• **Cooks Tip: Soft Ball Stage: To test, place a wet teaspoon into the syrup and drop into a cupful of cold water . If it forms a soft gluey ball that can be squashed and rolled in your fingers, then it is right. If tacky, continue to boil a minute or two before trying again.

Once again I have never made this recipe but I got it from here. Apart from one regular contributor I actually believe that most people post recipes that they have tried. In this case, because I'm not into making sweets I haven't tried this one either.

To make Base:
• Combine Coconut or Crushed Biscuit Crumbs with melted Butter.
• Press into springform pan. Chill.
To make filling:

Old recipe. shortcake base rolled out with Meringue - 2 stiffly beaten egg whites, add 4TBSPs sugar & beat again until stiff.Spread over base, cut into either squares or fingers & bake 20 -25 mins @ 180 or until crisp.These are yummy.

Thanks for the ideas so far.Does anyone have anything they have actually made!Am thinking more of an every day kind of slice or cake - though some of these sound fantastic for special occasion - think the Baileys Cheesecake will be on our Christmas menu!

I have made this and highly recommend it.

Well I have made scrambled eggs and omelettes by adding left over egg whites. The extra egg whites don't alter the finished product and it still tastes as good. No recipe needed for those two. I'm afraid they are not actually baking, but they do use up spare egg whites. Egg foo yong and frittata would also soak up excess egg whites. And don't forget the American trend of making egg-white-only omelettes and scrambled eggs.

Melt chocolate and cool.
Beat the other ingredients to the stiff peak stage and fold in the chocolate gradually.
Chill (in separate glasses). Serves 6.
