We’re whipping things up for some cloud-like drinks and dishes. From soufflés to fluffy pancakes, these melt-in-the-mouth recipes are guaranteed to leave you floating on air.
Bubbly eggs and omelettes
Let’s start with a classic omelette. To guarantee pillowy results, beat as much air into the mixture as possible before pouring it into a hot pan. Whisking the whites separately before folding them into lightly beaten yolks also works well.
Another option for lighter than air eggs is the much Instagrammed cloud egg. With their meringue-style whites gently baked in the oven, eggs don’t come much fluffier than this.
Master the soufflé
This sweet or savoury weightless wonder-dish is made by adding whipped egg whites to base ingredients before being carefully baked. Soufflés strike fear at the heart of many a cook, but there are ways to ensure light and lofty results.
Use room temperature ingredients and beat the eggs whites to stiff peaks before gently folding into the mix. Butter or grease the mould to aid an easy rise and place in the hottest part of the oven. Make sure everyone’s ready at the table to witness the results!
Puffed up pancakes and waffles
If you’re looking for sky high and jiggly results, try these awesome Japanese pancakes. Using similar ingredients to regular pancakes, the most notable difference in preparing them is that they’re pan fry in crumpet rings to give them their towering finish.
For fluffy and irresistible waffles, try these cinnamon sugar buttermilk beauties. A versatile waffle maker pays dividends, making easy work of waffles and other airy snacks like these soft and buttery madeleines.
