Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups egg whites from about 1 dozen eggs, at room temperature
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons cream of tartar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1 1/8 cups cake flour sifted
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 lemon zest freshly grated
  • 1 1/2 cups blueberries fresh or frozen

Glaze: Optional

  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 cup confectioners' sugar

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 375°.
  • In a mixer fitted with a whisk attachment (or using a hand mixer), whip the egg whites until foamy. Add the cream of tartar and salt and continue whipping until soft peaks form.
  • With the mixer running, gradually add 1 cup of the sugar and continue whipping until stiff and the sugar has dissolved, about 30 seconds.

  • Scoop the batter into paper lined large muffin cups.
  • Bake until light golden brown, 25 to 30 minutes.
  • Cool to room temperature.

Glaze:

  • Stir the ingredients together until smooth. Dip the tops of the muffins into the glaze.
