Step-by-step guide: how to beat egg whites to soft peaks
1. Put your egg whites into a clean glass bowl. Make sure you use room temperature eggs – that way you’ll get more volume.
2. Using an electric hand whisk, beat the egg whites until they start to fluff up.
3. The whites are ready once the peaks curl after you take the whisk away.
