    I am waiting for someone to answer. I don't make yeast cakes... I think the margarine must add a component that oil won't.

    I live in Israel and my makolet has no Haddar egg white liquid. What are the equivalencies I need? Thanks.

    I'm the one who actually made the recipe and photographed it. I just measured out the appropriate amount of egg whites from actual eggs. Don't worry about the brands and products that are not available here, you just need egg whites.

    8-12 egg whites is how many you would need for a cup.

    HI Devorah. Unfortunately these pictures were taken so many years ago. I would guess the filling with the most cocoa and margarine...
