  • 3/4 cup sour cream

  4. Using a small amount of egg whites gently fold into the yolk mixture a little at a time until it is well mixed. Continue to add remaining egg whites.
  5. Pour the mixture into a greased loaf pan.
  6. Bake in the center of the oven for 50 to 60 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  7. Allow the cloud bread to cool. Remove from the pan and slice. Store in the refrigerator.
