This is not a difficult recipe so please don't be discourage by the amount of time it takes to bake. Usually when I make this and it's in the oven, I do other things.
I have made this recipe for over 40 years for special guests, holidays and my family only. It never fails to please and get praises. I have kept it sceret all these years.
This is a recipe you need to read first. *I only use the freshest eggs and and the purest ingredients.* Plus, I would advise either baking this the day before or in the early morning as it does take time to bake.
- xlarge, room temp, fresh organic egg whites
- 1 c
- white baking sugar..or regular sugar or vanilla sugar
- 1 c
- powdered sugar..do not sift before measuring
- 2 tsp
- pure vanilla extract omit if you are using vanilla sugar
- 2 tsp
- fresh cream of tartar
- 2 tsp
- organic cider vinegar
- 1 pt
- organic heavy whipping cream
- 1 box
- fresh berries, my favorite is raspberries, but i have use other fresh fruit. you can use frozen, but drain them
- 1 Tbsp
- powdered sugar or to your taste
Dust a bundt pan with white flour. Shake out any access. And set aside away from the stove and/or heat source.
I sift my powdered sugar, but you don't have to do this either.
*You can use wooden chopsticks to help release any large air bubbles you think you might have by gently poking through the egg white mixture a few times.*
The top of the Cloud will have a light golden color to it when it is done.
Remove from oven. Let cool on a rack. Run a clean cold knife around the edges. Place a serving dish over the top of the Cloud and invert. Shake gently to loosen onto serving plate.
Refrigerate till completely chilled.
Chill until ready to serve.
I use powdered sugar when I make Whipped cream..it keeps the cream from separating or running.
I have used different flavored extacts and flavored sugars when making this..rose, lavendar, violet, lemon, orange, maple..you name it have use it. Including spices.
The way to get the best results when whipping cream is to place the bowl you are going to use to whip the cream in, in a bowl of ice.
