  • 2 egg whites*
  • 2 egg yolks, separated*
  • Pinch of salt
  • 3 drops black food coloring*


  1. HEAT oven to 375°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. BEAT egg whites in a mixer bowl on high speed until foamy, then add a pinch of salt and continue to beat until egg whites form stiff peaks.
  3. DOLLOP the egg white mixture onto the lined baking sheet into a mound with a spoon, then using the back of the spoon create a well in the center of the mound.
  4. BAKE until the egg whites are no longer wet and slightly golden, about 3 minutes.
  5. ADD the food coloring to one of the separated yolks and MIX until well combined with a toothpick.**
  6. GENTLY add the other yolk to the center of the egg whites.
  7. SLOWLY pour the black egg yolk over the cloud egg.**
  8. BAKE again until the yolk is set, about 5 minutes.

*Optional to use two egg whites, two eggs yolks and food coloring for “solar eclipse” effect. Use only one egg white and one egg yolk for regular cloud eggs.
