Helen McMahon for Expert Village. The next ingredient is going to be sugar and this is
just plain regular granulated sugar. You dont need powdered sugar for this job and brown
sugar would not work very well, so, just plain granulated sugar. We need 2/3 of a cup. Heres
my 1/3 cup measure. This is added very slowly just at the edge of the bowl so that the egg
whites can absorb it a little bit at a time. Thats 1/3 and heres the second 1/3.
Very slowly as you continue to beat it you can turn your speed down a little bit as this
is going in so that it doesnt fly all over the room. As soon as youve add the 2/3
of a cup of sugar then you can jack up the speed and increase it so that that would beat
it into it very thoroughly.
And once again a reminder to scrape down the sides of the bowl so that the sugar will be
incorporated into your mixture very evenly. You continue beating. This takes a lot of
beating. You can do this for quiet a few minutes and Ill show you how to test to see when
