I wanted to know if anyone ever used meringue powder in a cake as a substitution for egg whites. I am making a cake for a friend's birthday and got the powder to stiffen my icing. On the can it says you can use it in place of egg whites. The cake is a boxed mix. Have you ever used this and if so, how did it turn out??
its a sustitution for egg white. You avoid sarmonella using meringe powder
JanH, thanks for the link!!! Can't wait to try the chocolate version.
Sometimes when I want my cakes to rise a little bit higher I add in some a couple teaspoons of meringue in the cake batter with the regular eggs.
