Cloud Bread tips?

I am trying to make cloud bread or oopsie bread to take with me on a trip coming up (they seem like they would be a good thing to eat on the road?)

But all three attempts have failed. The first time I got a little yoke in the white. The last two times I have just not folded the yellow mixture into the white right and it gets too loose and I end up putting it in a bread pan.

Can anyone assist?

I don't make these often anymore - love Buttoni's focaccia and Maria's sub rolls so much more - but when I did make them, it helped a lot to 1)make sure your whites are super stiff, and 2)before they are quite stiff enough, mix in a rounded 1/8 tsp of xanthan gum. It doesn't affect the flavor at all but makes the whites hold up really well. So well, that I can use my mixer to blend in the yolks without anything collapsing.

As for traveling, these can be a tad fragile. If you overbake they can get dry and crumble easily (but that usually resolves itself with a stint in the fridge). They tend to stick to each other, too, so you will have to gently peel them apart when you need one or two. Maybe some parchment paper in between would help. I would put them in single layers in a plastic bag, but even the plastic bag would stick to them most times.

Don't mound and all that, just plop it onto a cookie sheet that's parchment lined and bake it, then cut into squares

Make sure those whites are so stiff when you turn the bowl upside down they stay in there.

I also have moved on from these however I used to stick them in the dehydrator after baking to dry the outside out a bit more. That helped immensely!

Every time I make them, I turn the bowl upside down...just to make sure

Uses for oopsie rolls (recipe thread)

Oopsies are still part of my maintenance plan.
Very Low Carb...keeping my blood sugar low prevents cravings for me.

NEVER GIVE UP !
