The recipe is simple: eggs (separated), cream cheese, cream of tartare. I don’t use stevia like some other recipes. It takes 10 minutes to prepare then approximately 15 minutes to bake.

The cloud bread rises in the oven like a meringue, and as it begins to brown, remove from the oven and leave it to cool. But how about the taste?

In one word: eggy. It smells like eggs and tastes like a whipped omelette. In other words, it’s nothing like bread. The texture is chewy and light but the taste left me saying, meh. Would I make it again? Not likely. I love eggs and I’d much rather have them poached for breakfast or soft boiled in a salad.

Here it is anyway, how to make cloud bread or oopsie bread.
