Cooking Thursday - Portuguese 10 Egg White Cake

Good morning everyone, sorry I haven't been updating as much, but the family is here and we've been treasuring every second and making up for lost time.   But I'm here with a recipe this morning, so let's get right to it.......


Bolo das 10 claras2
Bolo das 10 Claras
Portuguese 10 Egg White Cake

10 egg whites
pinch of salt
2/3 cup softened butter
1 and half cups sugar
3 tablespoons of milk
2 cups of flour
1 teaspoon of baking powder
Juice and rind of 1 small lemon

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Grease a cake pan with butter and flour.

Start by adding the egg whites to a big bowl, add in a pinch of salt and beat until firm.

In a separate big bowl, beat the softened butter and sugar until creamy.   Add the lemon juice and rind and the milk.  Mix well.  Add in the flour and the baking powder and mix until all ingredients are well combined.

Take a spoonful of the egg whites and add to the cake mix, slowly fold them in from bottom to top without beating.   Keep adding spoonfuls at a time and folding in gently until all the egg whites are mixed in.

Pour into the cake pan, sprinkle sugar on top to give it a nice crunchy crust and bake for 35 minutes or until golden brown and cake is done.

Remove from pan and serve.

That sounds so good! I bet it would go great with a bit of strawberries and blueberries.
