I tried a search for this recipe but the search function doesn't seem to work correctly at the moment. I think if you want help, you will likely have to post the recipe you used.

It helps if you beat the egg whites and parts of the sugar separately until stiff and add the at the very end by gently folding them into the batter with a spoon or spatula.
