Dessert Recipe
Melting Chocolate Cookie Tartlets

Notes: adapted from Alice Medrich's Bittersweet

Use: Eight 4-inch tartlet pans or ten 3.5-inch tartlet pans.

WHAT YOU NEED: 

For the crust:
8 tablespoons butter, melted
3 tablespoons sugar
3/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 cup all purpose flour
   
For the filling:  
6 ounces bittersweet or semisweet chocolate, coarsely chopped (50-62%). (For 64-66%, use 5 oz)
1/3 cup Eggology egg whites, at room temperature
1/8 teaspoon cream of tartar
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup chopped pecans or walnuts

INSTRUCTIONS 

  1. Position a rack in the lower third of the oven and preheat the oven to 350F.
  2. To make the crust: Mix the butter, sugar, vanilla, and salt in a medium bowl. Add the flour and mix just until well blended. Don't worry if the dough seems too soft. Divide the dough into 8-10 equal pieces. Press one piece of dough very thinly and evenly across the bottom and up the sides of each tartlet pan. Place the pans on a cookie sheet. Bake for 15-20 minutes, until a deep golden brown.
  3. While the crusts are baking, make the filling: Melt the chocolate in a medium heatproof bowl set in a wide skillet of barely simmering water, or in the microwave. Remove from the heat and stir until completely melted.
  4. In a large bowl, beat the Eggology egg whites with the cream of tartar and vanilla until soft peaks form when you lift the beaters. Gradually add the sugar and continue to beat until the Eggology egg whites are stiff but not dry. Pour the nuts and all of the warm chocolate over the Eggology egg whites and fold with a rubber spatula until the color of the batter is uniform.
  5. As soon as the tartlet crusts are ready, divide the filling equally among them. Make sure the batter touches the crust around all the edges. Return to the oven and bake the filling until it is dry or slightly cracked on top, about 10 minutes. Cool on a rack.
  6. To unmold, use the point of a paring knife to loosen one edge of the crust from the pan, then tip the tarts into your hand. Serve warm or at room temperature.
  7. Variations: Fold in 2 oz of crystallized ginger, finely chopped; 4 oz moist prunes, chopped into 1/4in pieces; 4 oz candied chestnuts, chopped. You can also substitute other nuts, like pine nuts.

Dessert Recipe
Venetian Chocolate-Almond Torte

 

WHAT YOU NEED: 

1 cup (5 ounces) unblanched or blanched whole almonds
7 ounces good-quality unsweetened chocolate, roughly chopped
1 cup sugar
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 1/4 cup Eggology egg whites
1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
Powdered sugar or unsweetened cocoa powder for dusting
Sweetened whipped cream for serving (optional)

INSTRUCTIONS 

  1. Position a rack in the lower third of the oven and preheat the oven to 350°F. Grease the sides of the springform pan and line the bottom with parchment paper.
  2. Combine the almonds, chocolate, 1/2 cup of the sugar, and the salt in a food processor and pulse until the almonds and chocolate are very finely chopped but not completely pulverized. Set aside.
  3. In the clean dry bowl of a stand mixer or using a hand-held mixer and a large bowl, beat the Eggology egg whites with cream of tarter until soft, moist peaks are formed when the beaters are lifted. Gradually add the remaining 1/2 cup sugar and continue to beat until the Eggology egg whites are stiff but not dry. Add one-third of the nut mixture to the egg whites and fold in with a large rubber spatula until nearly incorporated. Fold in half of the remaining nuts, then fold in the rest of the nuts.
  4. Scrape the batter into the prepared pan and spread it evenly. Bake until the torte has risen and is golden brown on top and a toothpick inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean, or with a little melted chocolate, 25 to 30 minutes. Set the pan on a rack to cool for 10 minutes. Remove the sides of the pan and invert the cake onto the rack. Remove the bottom of the pan and then the parchment liner. Turn the cake right side up and cool completely. Cover or wrap tightly, and store for up to 3 days at room temperature.
  5. To serve, transfer the cake to a serving plate. Dust with powdered sugar or cocoa, and serve slices with a dollop of whipped cream, if desired.

Dessert Recipe
Island Colada Cupcakes

 

WHAT YOU NEED: 

For the cupcakes:
2 cups sifted cake flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
8 tablespoons unsalted butter, at room temperature
1 3/4 cups sugar
1/2 cup milk, at room temperature
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon coconut extract
1/2 cup Eggology egg whites
1/2 - 2/3 cup shredded coconut
   
For the frosting:  
2/3 cup (approximately) fresh pineapple chunks
8 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature
1 1/2 sticks unsalted butter, at room temperature
1 3/4 cups powdered sugar, sifted
   
For garnish:  
shredded coconut
fresh pineapple wedges

INSTRUCTIONS 

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°.  Line a muffin tin with paper liners.
  2. In a medium bowl, sift together flour, baking powder and salt.  Set aside.
  3. In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the flat beater, beat the butter on high speed until creamy, about 30 seconds.  Gradually add the granulated sugar and continue beating, occasionally scraping down the sides of the bowl, until light and fluffy, 4 to 5 minutes.
  4. Reduce the speed to low and fold in the flour mixture in three additions, alternating with the milk and beginning and ending with the flour, until just blended.  Stir in the vanilla and coconut extract.  Stir in shredded coconut.  Transfer batter to a large mixing bowl and set aside.  Wash and thoroughly dry mixer bowl.
  5. In the mixer bowl, beat egg whites until stiff peaks form.  Using a rubber spatula, fold 1/4 cup of the Eggology egg whites into the batter until smooth.  Carefully fold in the remaining Eggology egg whites until smooth and blended.  Divide the batter among the prepared wells.
  6. Bake until the cupcakes are golden and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, about 15 minutes.  Transfer the pan to a wire rack and let cool for 10 minutes.  Remove the cupcakes from the pan and let cool on the rack to room temperature.
  7. To make the frosting, puree the pineapple chunks in food processor or blender until smooth.  In the bowl of an electric mixer, beat cream cheese and butter on high speed until light and fluffy, about 4 minutes.  Mix in powdered sugar until well combined.  Add pineapple puree to achieve desired pineapple flavor (approximately ½ cup).  If frosting is too runny, refrigerate for 30 minutes to allow to set up a bit. 
  8. Frost cupcakes with pineapple frosting, sprinkle with shredded coconut and garnish with fresh pineapple wedges.

Dessert Recipe
Captivating Chocolate Brownies

Notes: For beating eggs, you can use an electric beater or just a normal hand whisk and whisk it continuously. 

Stir the mixture means just folding in or just mixing it with a spatula.  Don't beat it.

WHAT YOU NEED: 

4 tablespoons (1/4 cup) unsalted butter
2 ounces unsweetened chocolate
1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 cup white sugar
3/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
pinch of salt
1/4 cup Eggology egg whites
3/8 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup chocolate chips
walnuts or almonds, roasted and chopped

INSTRUCTIONS 

  1. Preheat over to 400 F. Line a baking pan with foil or just coat the pan with olive oil and dust it with flour.

  3. In a separate bowl beat the Eggology egg whites until frothy. Add sugar, vanilla extract and salt. Mix well until the sugar dissolves. Overdoing it will spill the Eggology egg whites and you will have to do this step again. Add flour and stir until well combined. Add the mixture from step 1 and mix again.
  4. Add walnuts or almonds and the chocolate chips to the above egg mixture and mix it well.
  5. Pour the batter into the baking pan and bake for about 35 minutes.
  6. When the brownies are done, place them in the freezer for about 10 minutes or prepare a ice bath. This is done to cool the brownies.
  7. Allow the brownies to cool completely. Then remove them, cut and serve.

Dessert Recipe
Chocolate and Mixed Berry Pavlova

WHAT YOU NEED: 

For the meringue:
1 1/2 cups Eggology egg whites (room temperature)
1 1/2 cups superfine sugar (can be achieved by regular sugar in a food processor)
3 tablespoons cocoa powder passed through a sieve
1 teaspoon balsalmic vinegar
2 ounces bittersweet (or semi-sweet) chocolate, finely chopped
   
For the topping:  
2 cups heavy cream
1 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 pint blackberries (or seasonal berries)
1 pint raspberries (or seasonal berries)
2 cups (approximately) strawberries

INSTRUCTIONS 

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Line a cookie sheet with parchment. Using a cake pan about 9 inches or so in diameter, draw the outline of the cake pan onto the parchment with a pen, pencil, or Sharpie marker.  This will give you a guideline on where to mound the meringue.  Flip the parchment over (so you can see the pen markings, but won't taste it!) and place the parchment on the cookie sheet. Set aside.
  3. Hull the strawberries and cut them in half (or in quarters if they are large).  Put them in a bowl with about a tablespoon or two of sugar, stir, and cover with plastic wrap. Set aside. Stir every once in a while until ready to use.
  4. Using a metal bowl that has been cleaned and dried completely (you don’t want any residue from anything else in that bowl), beat the Eggology egg whites with a stand mixer or hand-held mixer until satiny peaks form (but not stiff peaks).
  5. Slowly add the sugar until the meringue is stiff and shiny (stiff peaks).
  6. Add both chocolates and the teaspoon of vinegar and, using a rubber spatula, GENTLY mix BY HAND until it is all incorporated. 
  7. Start mounding the meringue into the circle drawn on your parchment.  It’s okay if you have so much of it that you have to mound outside of the circle; just ensure that your meringue disk is as round as you can possibly get it. Smooth down the sides and top with your spatula.
  8. Place the cookie sheet in the oven and immediately turn the oven down to 300 degrees F and cook for one hour.
  9. After an hour, the edges of the meringue should be crackly, and when you push slightly in the center of the disk, it should not be completely dried out. Turn the oven off, leave the oven door ajar, and let cool to room temperature.
  10. Right before you’re ready to serve, remove the meringue from the oven and invert it onto a plate that’s big enough to hold it (as flat a plate as possible).
  11. Using a stand mixer or hand-held mixer, whip the cream with the sugar and vanilla extract until it’s thick and whipped thoroughly, then mound that on top of the meringue.
  12. Mound the macerated strawberries on top of the whipped cream, including some of their juices.
  13. Pile the blackberries and raspberries haphazardly around. If you want, you can shave some chocolate directly on top.
  14. Have people cut wedges of it themselves.

Servings: 10 - 12

WHAT YOU NEED: 

For the cake:
1 ounce unsweetened chocolate
2 cups cake flour
6 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
1 3/4 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup vegetable oil
2 1/2 tablespoons unsalted butter, slightly softened
1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
1 1/2 cups Eggology egg whites
1/4 cup coffee, room temperature
2 1/4 teaspoons vanilla extract
3/4 cup plain nonfat yogurt

1/2 cup Eggology egg whites
1/2 ounce unsweetened chocolate
2 1/2 tablespoons light corn syrup
3/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon instant coffee powder
1 teaspoon hot water
1/4 cup powdered sugar
3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder

INSTRUCTIONS 

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Grease (or spray with non-stick cooking spray) three 8" or 8 1/2" round cake pans.
  3. In a small, heavy saucepan over lowest heat, melt chocolate, stirring constantly until smooth; be careful not to scorch. Set aside.
  4. Sift together flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda and salt onto a sheet of wax paper.
  5. In a large mixer bowl, with mixer set on medium speed, beat oil, butter and sugar until very well blended and fluffy. Beat in chocolate.
  6. One at a time, beat in Eggology egg whites, coffee and vanilla until smoothly incorporated.
  7. Gently stir half of the dry ingredients, then yogurt into the mixture just until mixed.
  8. Stir in remaining dry ingredients just until well blended and smooth. Divide batter among pans, spreading in edges.
  9. Bake in the middle of the oven for 23-28 minutes, or until tops are almost firm when tapped and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out moist but clean.
  10. Transfer pans to racks and let stand until completely cooled.
  11. Layers may be wrapped airtight and frozen for later use. Let return to room temperature before using. Or frost cake and serve immediately, if desired.

Fluff Chocolate Frosting:

  1. Place Eggology egg whites in a large mixer bowl. Set the bowl in a large bowl of very hot tap water and let stand for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  2. In a small heavy saucepan set over low heat, melt chocolate, stirring constantly, until smooth; be very careful not to scorch. Set aside to cool slightly.
  3. Combine the corn syrup, 1/4 cup water and the sugar in a 2-quarter saucepan, stirring until well blended.
  4. Bring to a simmer over medium-heat heat. Cover and boil for 2 minutes to allow steam to wash any sugar from pan sides. Uncover and continue simmering, without stirring, until mixture bubbles loudly and reaches 244-245 degrees F on a candy thermometer (about 1 1/2 minutes). (To test without a candy thermometer, drop a teaspoon of syrup into ice water; when cooked to the proper temperature the syrup will form a firm ball that holds its shape when squeezed.)
  5. Immediately remove pan from heat and set aside.
  6. With mixer set on medium speed, beat Eggology egg whites until very frothy and opaque. Raise speed to high and beat until whites just begin to stand in soft peaks; be careful not to overbeat.
  7. Meanwhile, return syrup to burner and reheat just to boiling.
  8. Beating whites on high speed, immediately begin pouring boiling syrup in a stream down the side of the bowl (avoid beaters or syrup will stick to them or be thrown onto bowl side), pouring rapidly enough that all the syrup is incorporated in about 15 seconds. Add salt and continue beating on high speed until the mixture is stiffened, glossy and cooled to barely warm. Beat in vanilla and coffee mixture until evenly incorporated.
  9. Sift powdered sugar and cocoa onto a sheet of wax paper.
  10. A bit at a time, whisk into egg-white mixture.
  11. Whisk in melted chocolate just until smoothly incorporated.
  12. Frost cake immediately, or store frosting airtight for up to 48 hours. Frosting may soften and gradually deflate upon longer standing.

Ultimate Chocolate Frosting

WHAT YOU NEED: 

4 ounces semisweet chocolate
3/4 cup Eggology egg whites at room temperature
1 cup granulated sugar
1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar (or try substituting lemon juice)
3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1 pound unsalter butter at room temperature
3 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
3 teaspoons instant espresso powder, dissolved in 1 1/2 teaspoons water
3 tablespoons dark rum (optional)

INSTRUCTIONS 

  1. Melt the chocolate–either in microwave or with double boiler.
  2. Mix the egg whites, sugar, cream of tartar, and salt in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with a whisk attachment.
  3. Place the bowl of Eggology egg whites over the pan of simmering water and heat the Eggology egg whites until they are warm to the touch, about 5 minutes. Return the bowl to the electric mixer and whisk on high speed for 5 minutes, or until the meringue is cool and holds a stiff peak. (If this process isn’t feasible, it will still turn out great if you skip it.)
  4. Add the butter, 1 tablespoon at a time, while beating on medium speed. Scrape down the bowl, add the melted chocolate, vanilla, espresso, and rum, if using, and mix for 1 minute or until the chocolate is completely blended in. If the buttercream seems very soft, allow it to cool, and beat it again.

This makes A LOT of frosting, and you can chill and reuse. When it chills, it will stiffen. To reuse, just let it sit at room temperature until it regains the right texture.

Dessert Recipe
Colossal Candy Bars

Servings: 14 candy bars

WHAT YOU NEED: 

3 Musketeers bars
3 cups granulated sugar
3/4 cup light corn syrup
3/4 cup water
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup Eggology egg whites
1/3 cup semisweet chocolate chips
2 bags milk chocolate chips (12-ounce bags)

INSTRUCTIONS 

  1. In a large saucepan over medium heat, combine the sugar, corn syrup, water, and salt. Heat, stirring, to boiling, then continue
    to cook using a candy thermometer to monitor the temperature.
  2. Beat the Eggology egg whites until they are stiff and form peaks. Don't use a plastic bowl for this.
  3. When the sugar solution comes to 270 degrees F, or the soft-crack stage, remove from the heat and pour the mixture in
    thin streams into the Eggology egg whites, blending completely with a mixer set on low speed.
  4. Continue to mix until the candy begins to harden to the consistency of dough. This may take as long as 20 minutes.
  5. At this point add the semisweet chocolate chips. Remember that the candy must already be at the consistency of dough when you add the chocolate; the nougat will thicken no more after the chocolate is added.
  6. When the chocolate is thoroughly blended and the nougat has thickened, press it into a greased 9x9-inch pan. Refrigerate until firm, about 30 minutes.
  7. With a sharp knife, cut the candy in half down the middle of the pan. Then cut across into 7 segments to create a total of 14 bars.
  8. Melt the milk chocolate chips in the microwave for 2 minutes on half power, stirring halfway through the heating time. Melt completely, but be careful not to overheat. Resting a bar on a fork dip each bar into the chocolate to coat completely and place on wax paper.
  9. Cool until firm at room temperature, 1 to 2 hours.

Dessert Recipe
Melting Chocolate Cookie Tartlets

Notes: adapted from Alice Medrich's Bittersweet

Use: Eight 4-inch tartlet pans or ten 3.5-inch tartlet pans.

WHAT YOU NEED: 

For the crust:
8 tablespoons butter, melted
3 tablespoons sugar
3/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 cup all purpose flour
   
For the filling:  
6 ounces bittersweet or semisweet chocolate, coarsely chopped (50-62%). (For 64-66%, use 5 oz)
1/3 cup Eggology egg whites, at room temperature
1/8 teaspoon cream of tartar
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup chopped pecans or walnuts

INSTRUCTIONS 

  1. Position a rack in the lower third of the oven and preheat the oven to 350F.
  2. To make the crust: Mix the butter, sugar, vanilla, and salt in a medium bowl. Add the flour and mix just until well blended. Don't worry if the dough seems too soft. Divide the dough into 8-10 equal pieces. Press one piece of dough very thinly and evenly across the bottom and up the sides of each tartlet pan. Place the pans on a cookie sheet. Bake for 15-20 minutes, until a deep golden brown.
  3. While the crusts are baking, make the filling: Melt the chocolate in a medium heatproof bowl set in a wide skillet of barely simmering water, or in the microwave. Remove from the heat and stir until completely melted.
  4. In a large bowl, beat the Eggology egg whites with the cream of tartar and vanilla until soft peaks form when you lift the beaters. Gradually add the sugar and continue to beat until the Eggology egg whites are stiff but not dry. Pour the nuts and all of the warm chocolate over the Eggology egg whites and fold with a rubber spatula until the color of the batter is uniform.
  5. As soon as the tartlet crusts are ready, divide the filling equally among them. Make sure the batter touches the crust around all the edges. Return to the oven and bake the filling until it is dry or slightly cracked on top, about 10 minutes. Cool on a rack.
  6. To unmold, use the point of a paring knife to loosen one edge of the crust from the pan, then tip the tarts into your hand. Serve warm or at room temperature.
  7. Variations: Fold in 2 oz of crystallized ginger, finely chopped; 4 oz moist prunes, chopped into 1/4in pieces; 4 oz candied chestnuts, chopped. You can also substitute other nuts, like pine nuts.

Dessert Recipe
Classy Chocolate Mousse

Servings: 6

Recommendations: Use the best chocolate and don't overbeat the egg whites or the cream.

WHAT YOU NEED: 

6 ounces bittersweet chocolate, finely chopped
3/4 cup (+ 3/4 cup) heavy cream
1/2 cup Eggology egg whites
pinch of salt
1/8 teaspoon cream of tartar
1/4 cup sugar

INSTRUCTIONS 

  1. Place your finely chopped chocolate in a medium-sized heatproof bowl. Bring 3/4 cup of the cream just to a boil in the microwave or in a small saucepan over medium heat. Pour over the chopped chocolate and tap the bowl once on the counter to settle the chocolate into the cream. Allow to rest for 1 minute, then using a heatproof rubber spatula, slowly stir the mixture to melt and combine, starting in the center and work your way out - keep stirring until smooth and all the chocolate has melted. Transfer to a large bowl and set aside.
  2. In the bowl of a stand mixer with a whisk attachment (or a large mixing bowl with an electric mixer) beat the Eggology egg whites until they begin to foam. Add the salt and cream of tartar and continue beating at medium speed until they form soft, slighty drooping peaks when the beaters are lifted. Still beating, add the sugar and continue beating until the egg whites form stiff but not dry peaks.
  3. Fold the egg white mixture into the chocolate mixture gently with a rubber spatula until fully blended.
  4. In the same bowl in which you beat the Eggology egg whites, beat the remaining 3/4 cup of cream on medium speed until it forms soft peaks 1 to 2 minutes - do not overbeat. Gently fold this into the egg white and chocolate mixture.
  5. Spoon the mixture into individual glasses or dishes and refrigerate until well chilled - about two hours. Serve with a bit of lightly sweetened whipped cream and decorate with chocolate shavings if you want.

                    3. Beat the honey, lemon zest, and apricot puree until smooth.
                    4. In a clean dry bowl, beat the Eggology egg whites until soft peaks from, then beat in the remaining sugar. Fold 1 tablespoon egg whites into the apricot mixture and mix well. Lightly fold in the remaining egg white, being careful to keep the mixture light and aerated. Spoon into the souffle dish and level the surface. Run your thumb around the inside rim to create a gap between the mixture and the wall of the dish (this encourages even rising).
                    5. Bake on the upper shelf in the oven for 25-30 minutes or until risen and just set. Cover loosely with foil if the surface starts to overbrown. Remove from oven and dust with confectioners’ sugar and serve at once. Makes 4 servings.

                          12 oz. cream cheese, at room temperature
                          18 tablespoons unsalted butter, at room temperature
                          2 2/3 cups confectioner's sugar, sifted

                          fresh pinapple wedges
                          fresh strawberries

                          INSTRUCTIONS 

                          1. Preheat oven to 350°.  Line the bottoms of two 9-inch round cake pans with parchment paper, and grease and flour the sides.
                          2. In a medium bowl, sift together cake flour, baking powder and salt.  Set aside.
                          3. In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the flat beater, beat the butter on high speed until creamy, about 30 seconds.  Gradually add the granulated sugar and continue beating, occasionally scraping down the sides of the bowl, until light and fluffy, about 4 to 5 minutes.
                          4. Reduce the speed to low and fold in the flour mixture in three additions, alternating with the milk and beginning and ending with the flour, until just blended.  Stir in the vanilla and coconut extract.  Transfer batter to a large mixing bowl and stir in the shredded coconut.  Thoroughly clean and dry the bowl of the electric mixer.
                          5. In the mixer bowl, beat Eggology egg whites until stiff peaks form.  Using a rubber spatula, fold ½ cup of the egg whites into the batter until smooth, then carefully fold in the remaining whites until smooth and blended.  Divide the batter evenly between the prepared pans. 
                          6. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.  Transfer to a wire rack and let cool for 10 minutes.  Remove the cakes from the pans and allow to cool on the rack to room temperature.
                          7. To make the frosting, puree pineapple in the food processor until smooth.  In the bowl of an electric mixer, beat the cream cheese and butter on high speed until smooth and fluffy, about 4 to 5 minutes.  Add powdered sugar and mix until smooth.  Add pureed pineapple until frosting achieves the desired pineapple flavor (approximately ¾ cup of puree).  Add yellow food coloring to achieve a brighter color, if desired.  If frosting is too liquid, allow to chill in the refrigerator 30 minutes before using to set up.   
                          8. To assemble the cake, place one of the cake layers on a cardboard cake circle.  Top with a layer of pineapple frosting.  Top with remaining cake layer.  Frost sides and top of cake with remaining frosting.  Garnish with shredded coconut, fresh strawberries and/or pineapple wedges, as desired.

                                      1. Whisk together half and half, cornstarch, spices, and 1 Tbsp succanat in a small heavy saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium heat, whisking, then simmer, whisking, 2 minutes.

                                      3. Preheat oven to 400°F with rack in lower third. Butter ramekins and coat with succanat, knocking out excess, then put in a large shallow baking pan.
                                      4. Beat Eggology egg whites with salt in another large bowl using an electric mixer until they hold soft peaks. Add remaining 3/4 cup succanat a little at a time, beating, then beat until whites hold stiff, glossy peaks, 1 to 2 minutes more.
                                      5. Fold one third of whites into cooled pumpkin mixture to lighten, then fold in remaining whites gently but thoroughly. Divide mixture among eight 6-oz ramekins, mounding it.

                                            INSTRUCTIONS

                                            1. Combine the first 3 ingredients in a bowl; stir well, and set aside. Beat 2 egg yolks in a large bowl at high speed of a mixer for 2 minutes. Gradually add 1/2 cup sugar, beating until thick and pale (about 2 minutes). Add 2 tablespoons water and vanilla, beating at low speed until blended. Add the flour mixture, and beat well.
                                            2. Beat 3 egg whites at high speed of a mixer until foamy. Gradually add 1/4 cup sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time, beating until stiff peaks form. Gently stir one-fourth of egg white mixture into batter; gently fold in remaining egg white mixture.
                                            3. Pour batter into an 8-inch square baking pan coated with cooking spray. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes or until cake springs back when touched lightly in center; let cool 5 minutes in pan on a wire rack. Loosen cake from sides of pan, using a narrow metal spatula, and turn out onto wire rack; let cool completely.
                                            4. Place cake, bottom side up, on an ovenproof platter. Spread jam over cake. Cut container of frozen yogurt in half; reserve one half for another use. Cut remaining half of frozen yogurt into 1-inch-thick slices. Arrange frozen yogurt slices over jam; cover and freeze at least 15 minutes. (You can assemble recipe to this point one day ahead and store, covered, in the freezer.)
                                            5. Beat 4 egg whites and cream of tartar at high speed of a mixer until stiff peaks form; set aside. Combine 1/3 cup sugar and 3 tablespoons water in a saucepan, and bring to a boil. Cook, without stirring, until candy thermometer registers 238 degrees. Pour sugar mixture in a thin stream over egg whites, beating at high speed. Spread meringue over yogurt slices and around sides of cake (yogurt and cake should be completely covered with meringue). Bake at 500 degrees for 2 minutes.
