Gently fold in the flour mixture. Repeat, sifting and folding in one-fourth of the flour mixture at a time. Fold in nuts. Gently stir in egg whites. Spoon batter into prepared molds, filling each mold about half full. Bake in a 375~oven for 10 to 12 minutes or till edges are golden and tops spring back when lightly touched.
