How to make cloud bread

To start, we will use 4 eggs at room temperature so that the whites mount better. We will need two large bowls, one for the whites and one for the yolks. We separate the whites from the yolks very carefully so that no yolk falls into the whites or they will not mount well. Beat the egg whites until stiff with ½ teaspoon of salt and with the help of some rods until they are firm. Next, we add ½ teaspoon of baking soda and continue to assemble until the baking soda is well mixed.
