*Reserve the whites of the eggs in the refrigerator.


  1. For your meringue, use only a stainless steel bowl or a glass bowl. Place it in the refrigerator to chill the bowl before using.
  2. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Spray custard cups or whatever pans you are using, and place on a flat cookie sheet.

  9. While they are cooking, start making your meringue. Take out of the refrigerator the egg whites and the steel or glass bowl you will be using. Start with your mixer on medium speed, mixing egg whites, adding 1 cup of sugar with a 1/4 tsp. of cream of tartar. Slowly add this a bit at a time and increase the speed of the mixer to high. Add 1 tsp. of vanilla. Continue beating until you see the whites thicken and you can form peaks in the fluff, then stop.

  11. During the last 1 full minute of cooking, open the oven and pull the cookie sheet out. Using a large spoon, plop a large amount of meringue on top of each cake quickly, and put the pan back in on the top shelf. Turn on your broiler, leaving your oven door 1/4 open. When they start to turn golden, take them right out!
