In a glass mixing bowl, whisk the egg white until frothy and doubled in volume.
Sift the icing sugar over the egg whites, a little at a time, and mix well between each addition. It will become glossy and smooth and then somewhat dough-ey. Continue to add sugar and mix until it forms a soft and pliable dough.
If adding colour and / or flavour, do it now. If it makes the dough wet and sticky again, then add a few spoons of sugar to balance it out.
Use a melon baller or a measuring teaspoon to scoop out equal portions and roll them into smooth balls.
Place a few of them on a large microwavable plate lined with kitchen paper, leaving 2 inches space between them as they will puff up while cooking.
Microwave them in batches of 3-5, depending on the size of your microwave, on High/Full Power (1000W) for 1 min 30 secs per batch.
Remove from the kitchen paper immediately using an offset spatula or butter knife (as they will be hot) and transfer onto wire racks to cool completely. They should sound hollow when tapped (like a ping pong or table tennis ball).
Repeat with the remaining portions until all done and all of them have cooled. Once cool, store in airtight jars or good quality zip lock bags. Serve as is as a sugary treat along with tea/coffee or top with fresh fruit and whipped cream.
