Raisins, walnuts and dried plums fill this fruitcake-like dessert shared by Kera Bredin from Vancouver, British Columbia. "When I have leftover egg whites, I like to make this old Russian family recipe," Kera says.
Total TimePrep: 15 min. Bake: 40 min. + cooling
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup raisins
- 1 cup chopped pitted dried plums
- 1 cup chopped walnuts
- 4 large egg whites
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- In a bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Stir in raisins, plums and walnuts; toss to coat evenly. In a bowl, beat egg whites on high speed until stiff peaks form. Stir about a third of the egg whites and vanilla into flour mixture. Fold in remaining egg whites. Transfer to a 9-in. square baking dish coated with cooking spray.
- Bake at 300° for 40-45 minutes or until golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool. Cut into squares.
