    9. Whisk the egg whites into stiff peaks in a clean dry large bowl.
    10. Fold the spinach batter into it lightly, don't over mix.
    11. Spoon the mixture into the baking cups and tap gently on the kitchen table to release any air pockets.
    12. Run a thin dry clean knife all around the edges of each cup and set them on the baking tray on the medium shelf in the oven.
    13. Bake for 15 mins or until well-risen and golden brown on top.
