In separate bowl, using clean beaters and mixer on high speed, beat egg white with cream of tartar until stiff but not dry; fold into batter. Spray eight 2½ inch diameter nonstick muffin pan cups with nonstick cooking spray; spoon ⅛ of batter into each sprayed cup (each will be about ⅔ full) and partially fill remaining cups with water (this will prevent pan from burning and/or warping).

Remove pan from oven and carefully drain off water (remember, it will be boiling hot); remove muffins to wire rack and let cool. Makes 4 servings of 2 MUFFINS EACH!
