Story Behind this Recipe

I always freeze the leftover egg whites, but I often forget them and they are sitting in there. I created this recipe so that I can use them up, then it was a hit. Since it's easy to make and is delicious, I make it whenever I have leftover egg whites. You can still use 18 cm pound cake pan for 3 egg whites.
