It won't whip up.
no peaks here.
what on earth can i do with it.
it is a 5 egg white mix.
just don't want to waste it

Does that not mean that the eggs are off?

how can it not whip? have you added enough sugar? have you got an electric whip and can bribe a child to hold it in there for like 30 mins?

Try this: get an absolutely clean bowl and tip it in and try whipping again. It can work.

add the yolks, plus flour and marge and make a sponge?

bowl spotless and made of copper
eggs( maybe a bit old) but not orf
plenty of sugar for weight of egg.

I'd say it was the eggs.

yolks made into choc icecream earlier

PandaG Tue 06-Oct-09 19:56:57

ah. don't know what to suggest then. are you sure you didn't get a bit of yolk into the whites?

cremolatorium Tue 06-Oct-09 19:58:24

not sure pandagblush

if the eggs are iffy, I'd chuck it and feel pleased you've saved yourself from runny bum

is it glossy but runny?

I would be tempted to pipe into rosettes and cook any way

if they come out utterly disastrous then bash up and make eton mess

ta-dahhh

Did anyone see that Come Dine With Me in which one of the contestants tried FIVE times to make a pavlova? Twas v funny.

didn't see that one , but i love come whine with me. the voice over is hilarious.
just in case anyone had Edwinaesque concerns -the mix is in the compost.
sad
i was hoping for a nigel slater blackberry and pistachio eton mess extravaganza.
never mind....
