Instructions

Cloud bread

  1. Preheat oven to 300°F (150°C).
  2. Separate the eggs. Put the egg whites in one bowl and the yolks in another.
  3. Whip egg whites together with salt (and cream of tartar, if you are using any) until very stiff. Preferably using a hand held electric mixer. You should be able to turn the bowl over without the egg whites moving.
  4. Add cream cheese to the egg yolks and mix well. To make the oopsie more bread-like, add in the optional psyllium seed husk and baking powder.
  5. Gently fold the egg whites into the egg yolk mixture — try to keep the air in the egg whites.
  6. Put 8 cloud bread pieces on a paper-lined baking tray.
  7. Bake in the middle of the oven for about 25 minutes, until they turn golden.
