    Hi Kate! I saw this recipe on your Instagram and I couldn’t believe they’re just 3pp per 2 of them! They look delicious. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I just had two questions… Since I’m from The Netherlands, we don’t have the same brands/ingredients as in the US. So I tried to Google the “2 Tbsp just egg whites” and learned that “just egg whites” is a brand of dried egg white powder, right? Or do you mean 2 Tbsp of egg whites, fresh from the egg? Because at the instructions you first say “Mix all of your dry ingredients together in a bowl.” and after that “Add in your egg whites”. So, if “just egg whites” are the dried egg white powder, shouldn’t I mix it with the other ingredients? Or do I add fresh egg white after the dry ingredients?

    Second questions: I don’t have a donut pan, can I use this dough also for cupcakes?

    Thanks so much for your help in advance, can’t wait to start baking this! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Best, Yvonne.

      Hi there, just egg whites is like an egg beaters, we have cartons here in Canada and they are called just egg whites, its liquid egg whites, you can use the egg whites from an egg but I find that a lot of work ๐Ÿ˜‰ also you could probably use a muffin tin, maybe a mini one would work best.. Happy baking ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thx for your quick reply! So no dried egg white powder, but liquid egg white in a carton! I just Googled and we do have that in The Netherlands. Just not in the regular supermarkets, but I’ll find it. I agree, separating egg whites and yolk is horrible, so egg whites in a carton is a great “invention”! However, must not confuse this carton with the milk carton in the morning…. ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

    So yummy. I did not have white cake mix, I did have a box of Pineapple Upside down cake mix and used that as well as some orange zest because I didn’t have lemon zest. It turned out really good.

    Just made these! But I was curious as to whether these needed to be refrigerated or not? Thanks, love all your recipes!

    Hi! Is there a specific reason for the almond milk? This isn’t something I normally have on hand, would regular milk work as well, or is it for the flavoring?
    Thanks!

      No it’s just low on points or no points depending how much the recipe calls for, you can use reg milk that is fine ๐Ÿ™‚
