Things You Will Need

Mixer bowl
Whipping machine


1) In a mixer bowl, add the egg whites and whip on medium high to high speed.
2) While still whipping, gradually add the granulated sugar.
3) Continue to whip until the mixture reaches soft peaks. The tip of the meringue should be slightly curl over but should not fall down when the beater is taken out from the mixer.

4) Use the French Meringue in cake batters or as desired.

Ensure that fresh egg whites are used and not pasteurized ones.
