This reminds me of a recipe I use to make for my family, except you added 4 cups of Corn Flakes in it, and baked it for 5 min. longer. This is a good recipe when you are trying to watch your fat in-take.
This was a really great recipe and I will do these again. If you have problems with the whites not coming to a peak it's usually because there some oil or fat of some type in the bowl or on the equipment. The lipids will prevent the egg white and air from incorporating properly. Grease free is a must!
If you have problems getting your meringue to peak, you should add a small amount of cream of tartar. It should fix the problem.
