I have few bags of egg whites sitting in my freezer for quite sometimes. In order to get rid of the whites I choose to bake this lemon butter cake which only whites are used. According to the recipes’ author the butter has to be beaten until really light, fluffy stage before adding the whites. Whites has to be added slowly in small amount into beaten butter. Or else the whites won’t be absorbed by the beaten butter.

Overall the cake is just ok. Due to only whites are used it is not as rich and fragrant with the one with whole eggs. However it is still consider a nice cake.
