Eggs to Impress

Cloud eggs are basically egg beauties! They are fluffed up egg whites, baked to perfection and sure to bring a smile to anyone who makes them or eats them. They have taken the internet by storm and that’s why I decided to try them as well. Recipes vary, mine is simple to make and sure to impress!

Preparation Time: 7 mins
Baking Time: 5 mins
Serves: 1
  • 1 egg
  • Salt
  • Black pepper
  • Parmesan cheese
  • Fresh coriander leaves (optional)

  1. Separate the yolk from the egg white.
  2. Sprinkle some salt and pepper for taste to the egg white and start beating it. Basically, keep beating it till you can beat no more!
  3. As you all probably know by now I love my old fashioned spiral egg beater as its too much trouble to use an electric egg beater for just one egg.
  4. I used that and whipped the egg white for about 5-6 minutes till I got stiff foam (see pic).
  5. Using a spoon, scoop the foam onto a baking tray lined with parchment paper. The foamy texture is actually quite simple to shape and you can easily create a cloud like form. I created two clouds out of the one egg I had whipped.
  6. Using the back of the spoon create a small hollow in one of the clouds and gently slip your egg yolk into it. I placed some fresh coriander leaves to make the other cloud look pretty.
  7. Sprinkle some Parmesan cheese onto both the clouds and pop them into the oven at 180 degrees C for 5 minutes.
  8. Your cloud egg beauties are ready to show off to the world!
  9. Mmmmmm….they are delicious too.
