Ingredients

  • 11 egg whites
  • 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons cake flour
  • 1-1/2 cups sugar, divided
  • 1-1/4 teaspoons cream of tartar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1-1/2 cups fresh or frozen blueberries
  • 1 teaspoon grated lemon peel
  • GLAZE:
  • 1 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice

Nutritional Facts

1 cupcake equals 76 calories, trace fat (trace saturated fat), 0 cholesterol, 60 mg sodium, 18 g carbohydrate, trace fiber, 2 g protein. Diabetic Exchange: 1 starch.

Directions

  1. Place egg whites in a large bowl; let stand at room temperature for 30 minutes. Sift together flour and 1/2 cup sugar three times; set aside.
  2. Add cream of tartar, vanilla and salt to egg whites; beat on medium speed until soft peaks form. Gradually add remaining sugar, about 2 tablespoons at a time, beating on high until stiff glossy peaks form and sugar is dissolved. Gradually fold in flour mixture, about 1/2 cup at a time. Fold in blueberries and lemon peel.
  3. Fill paper-lined muffin cups three-fourths full. Bake at 375° for 14-17 minutes or until cupcakes spring back when lightly touched. Immediately remove from pans to wire racks to cool completely.
  4. In a small bowl, whisk confectioners' sugar and lemon juice until smooth. Brush over cupcakes. Let stand until set. Yield: 2-1/2 dozen.
Editor's Note: If using frozen blueberries, use without thawing to avoid discoloring the batter.

MY REVIEW

I made this recipe with a box angel food mix due to a time constraint.....my family loved them. Moist, light, but not as boring as plain angelfood cake!Will definitely make these again!

These sounded yummy, but all I could taste was cream of tarter. The icing made them sticky and mushy.
