How to Separate Egg Whites and Yolks
If you don’t have an egg separator, don’t stress or go out and spend extra money. We have a few methods to help you separate the egg yolk and the egg whites with materials that you probably already in your kitchen.
Make sure your eggs are cold when separating them. It makes the process much easier than using warm eggs.
Making the Keto Cloud Bread
- 1First, preheat your oven to 300 degrees.
- 2Add the cream of tartar to the mixing bowl with the egg whites. If you have an electric mixer, you’re definitely going to want to use it. Beat the mix on high speed until stiff peaks form. This can be a long process if you’re beating by hand but it’s super important for the peaks to form, regardless of which method you use.
- 3Add the cream cheese, dried minced garlic, and salt to the mixing bowl with the egg yolks. Mix all ingredients until they’re completely smooth. There shouldn’t be any chunks of cream cheese in the mixture.
- 4Slowly and carefully, add in the egg whites a little bit at a time to the bowl with the egg yolks. Each time you add a little bit of the egg white mixture, fold it in with a spatula. This step is very important. It’s very important to avoid breaking the air bubbles in the egg whites. Once you’ve folded in all of the egg whites, there should be no white streaks in the bread mix. Don’t be worried about the consistency of the mix, it won’t be like most other bread dough.
- 5Line two baking sheets with parchment paper and flour the parchment paper. This makes removing the cloud bread easier when it’s cooled. If you don’t have parchment paper, flouring the baking sheets themselves will work, too.
- 6Using a large spoon or ice cream scoop, scoop 12 round flat discs onto your baking sheet, again being careful not to break the air bubbles. These are what makes the bread so light and fluffy.
- 7Place the baking sheets into your oven. It should take somewhere between 25 to 30 minutes to bake. They should be a nice golden brown when they’re finished.
- 8Let the bread cool and then it’s ready to serve. If you eat the bread warm, it has a nice airy taste. If you wait until they’re completely cooled, they will taste more like bread.
