This recipe is great!! I made mine with a mashed riped banana and vanilla extract in replace of the squash and lemon.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350. Line muffin cups with cupcake papers.
  2. In your mixer bowl, combine the egg whites, cream of tarter, and salt. Beat until the egg whites double in volume and form stiff peaks. (about 4 to 5 minutes).
  3. Add the flour, sugar, squash, extract and zest. Use a rubber spatula and fold gently to combine with the egg whites.
  4. Divide the batter among the cupcake tins. Bake until the tops of the cupcakes are lightly brown and spring back to the touch, about 18 to 20 minutes.
  5. Cool on a rack and then frost.
