 - In a separate bowl, whisk 3 egg whites with a handheld egg whisk, until stiff peaks form.

(see tip on egg pic for my method of how to seperate eggs)

- Using a METAL spoon fold the egg whites into the cake mixture, be gentle, you dont want to knock all the air out of the eggs.

- once all is mixed well put mixture into 12 muffin cases.

 -bake into the oven for 25 - 30 minutes, or until the sponge bounces back when touched.
