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.

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.

Way better than the box, which I usually use, and much less expensive, too!

This was easy & fantastic! I used it for fish tacos. Light, crispy and not at all over-bearing. Didn't change a thing.

Using egg whites made a light, crunchy batter. The first batch I made exactly to the recipe, but it needed seasoning. Second batch, I added Original Mrs Dash....delish!

Turned out great! But can be improved with a few spices in the dry batter. I added Old Bay Seasoning and it made it better for my taste. Thanks!

Substituted club soda for the water as others suggested. The coating was a little bland. Next time I will add a little garlic salt. Will make again.

I, also, made it with the club soda. It was perfect. I used it on fish. It could use more flavor. Any ideas other than garlic powder?
