Whipping Egg Whites take 2

I thought I’d try beating egg whites again. Without heat, but with a pinch of cream of tartar.

They whipped to what looked like soft peaks quite ok. But then they deflated when I put the sugar in. 😦

So I had to bring out the Kenwood Mixmaster and stiffen the egg whites. I made plenty of little meringues, but the conclusion of these experiments is that the Thermomix is NOT cut out for making meringues.

    I use the Kitchen Aid for meringue – much better. The Thermomix doesn’t like it when you add sugar too fast.
