Notes


This recipe is very simple to make however if you are not getting optimal results, the following are a few tips to help you.


    • Beat The Eggs Well:  The egg whites should be beaten very well.  When lifting out your beater stiff peaks should form and egg white will stick to the beater.
    • Do Not Underbake: Your cloud bread shouldn’t seem moist (like an omelette would be) in the middle.  The texture should be drier than a meringue on a lemon meringue pie.  If your cloud bread is under-baked it will likely fall apart when you use it and it will have a moist eggy texture.  As it sits, the texture will improve so ensure they cool completely.
    • Cool Completely:  I leave my cloud bread to cool on a rack at least 60 minutes or longer.  This allows it to cool but also to slightly dry out.  These are best eaten several hours after baking.
    • Freeze unused portions.  They defrost in seconds and last for a month or more.
