Left over Egg White Cake

I bake quite a few cakes to sell, but I am always left with the egg whites which really upsets me to throw them away, it feels wrong, however my sister has come to live with me here in England and I asked her to find me some recipe where I could use the egg whites in a cake so she found an excellent way to to save them in the cake recipe given bellow, which we have made some alterations to the original recipe.

Recipe Ingredients:

  • 125grs baking margarine
  • 250grs sugar
  • 190grs flour
  • 1 tea spoon baking powder
  • the juice and zest of one orange
  • 8 egg whites

Very simple indeed, soften the margarine and mix with the sugar until a creamy pale paste, add to this the flour premixed with the baking powder, then add the juice and zest of the orange. Once this is done beat the eggs whites until they peak and add to the previous mixture with a folding action. Rub some margarine is a cake pan and dust it with flour adding covering the bottom with grease proof paper, the cake containing egg whites will stick a lot.
Bake it in a medium oven for 35 minutes (gas mark 180 c) and that's this simple is done.
I didn't do this but I think it could be really nice to warm up the juice of an orange with a measure of Cointreau, stabbing the cake all over with a fork and letting the Cointreau sauce soak into it. yum yum!! (but of course is just an idea)
But anyway now you can save all your egg whites with no fear of high cholesterol giving cake :)

What a brilliant idea. I will be sure to save my egg whites next time. Waste not want not right? That cake would be so great with some fresh strawberries.

Yes that is what I used it at the time to use egg whites, is is fantastic as not only you use them is light and you get something out of it, I left it as a blank canvass on purpose, exactly for people to put whatever they want on it as you said for example fresh strawberries, in fact I have made a cake before with fresh strawberries, thank you so much kisses :) xx
