Spring has sprung and Summer is around the corner! Berries are back and this recipe is a family favorite whether you are watching your carbs or not. You can use strawberries, blueberries, blackberries or whatever you like for this little gem. ( Carb counts will vary by berry...so be wary lol)
Preheat oven to 275F. Separate the egg whites from the yolks. Whip the egg whites until they are foamy.
In a medium mixing bowl add the yolks, cream cheese, vanilla, baking powder, and erythritol and beat until smooth. (It helps if the cream cheese is room temp but it's not necessary)
Fold egg whites slowly into the egg yolk mixture, then spread evenly on a baking sheet covered with slightly oiled parchment paper.
Bake for 30-40ish minutes until golden brown. ( Ovens vary)
Let cool while you are slicing or washing berries and making the whipped cream.
Add the heavy whipping cream and sweetener if you are using any to your kitchen-aid on high and whip it. Whip it good.... until its fluffy. You can also use a hand mixer.
Slice strawberries if using.
Put it together
Slice the "cake" or "cloud bread" with a pizza cutter into nine even"ish" pieces.Alternate layers of cake, whipped cream and berries. ( Three layers of cake)
Serve immediately...you can't keep these hanging around in the fridge.
Enjoy your treat!
