Definitely sent by angels, this recipe makes 24 cuppies and is diabetic friendly. They are sooo pretty tinted with a bit of food coloring; just stir it in the batter. If you're making them for a baby shower (so much easier and cheaper than buying a heavy-on-the-calories bakery cake) tint some of the batter blue, some of the batter pink, and bake them in the mini-muffin liners. The possibilities are ENDLESS!

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees.
  2. In a large mixer bowl, beat the egg whites and cream of tartar until soft mounds form. Gradually add in the 1/3 cup sugar, heating until stiff peaks form. Blend in extracts.
  3. Mix together 1 cup sugar and flour (also baking powder and salt if using all-purpose flour). Add to egg white mixture. By hand, fold in gently, but thoroughly. Fold in coconut. (Add food coloring now if you desire).
  4. Spoon into paper-lined muffin cups filing to within 1/4 an inch of the top. Bake for 30-35 minutes or until light golden brown and the cake is set. If using the mini muffin liners, bake 20-25 minutes.
  5. **NOTE** Cakes may be made ahead and frozen, tightly wrapped, for 2-3 weeks. Allow 2 hours to thaw at room temperature.
