    This is pretty good, using just egg whites does make for a lighter batter. I would suggest using Club Soda instead of cold water - that makes for an even lighter batter.  -  14 May 2014  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Came out light and fluffy! I used one egg white and one whole egg. Added some salt, pepper and garlic powder to the flour. And used club soda instead of water.  -  09 Feb 2015  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Made exactly as the recipe. Puffed up nicely on the onion rings and fish I made but was very light in color and bland tasting. Ended up adding one yolk for a double batch and that helped along with some basic spices to liven the taste up.  -  25 Dec 2014  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
