Ingredients

    4 egg whites (room temperature)
    Juice of one lemon (or flavouring of choice)
    1 cups of flour
    1 cup of sugar
    1 teaspoons cream of tartar






Tips

Adjust the amount of lemon juice according to taste, I like a lot of lemon in mine as I'm a big fan of it's sharp taste but for anybody who's not just reduce it.


Directions

1.Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line cupcake pans with paper liners.

2. Place egg whites in a large mixing bowl and beat at high speed until egg whites are frothy, approximately 1 minute (may take a bit longer)

3.Add cream of tartar and lemon juice (or flavouring of choice) to egg whites. Mix at high speed until egg whites are almost stiff, approximately 4 minutes.
4.Add 1 cup of sugar gradually while mixing on low speed. Scrape bowl.

5. Spoon your flour slowly over egg whites, folding gently between each addition.

6.Pour batter into cupcake liners until they are 2/3 full. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until tops are golden brown.
7.Cool cupcakes completely before removing from pan.
