Cloud Bread is the perfect low carb way to enjoy a sandwich without the heaviness of normal bread. When first cooked, it has a souffle-like texture but once it cools, it is much more like bread. Plus, it only needs four ingredients so it is simple to make.

Got the urge to make more homemade bread? Why not try this No Knead Bread for an easy way to have fresh bread without all that kneading? Or for something sweeter, try this Monkey Bread, filled with cinnamon and sugar.

CLOUD BREAD INGREDIENTS

cloud bread raw ingredients that are labeled

You will need:

  • 3 extra-large eggs, room temperature
  • ¼ teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 3 tablespoons (1.5 ounce) cream cheese, softened (or 3 tablespoons greek yogurt)
  • ⅛ teaspoon kosher salt

SUBSTITUTIONS AND ADDITIONS

Eggs: If you are a little unsure you can separate the eggs properly, then use egg whites. You can buy them in a carton in the store and save the mess of trying to separate them.

HOW TO MAKE THIS CLOUD BREAD RECIPE

STEP ONE: You will need 2 medium size glass mixing bowls. They will need to be completely clean, with no soap or residue of any kind. Even the smallest amount of missed residue will stop the egg whites from forming stiff peaks. The batter will be watery and will not bake properly. 

STEP TWO: Preheat the oven to 300 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

STEP THREE: Separate the eggs into the 2 glass bowls. Be certain that NO egg yolk is in the egg whites, or it will not form the stiff peaks.

STEP FOUR: Add the cream of tartar to the egg whites.

STEP FIVE: Using an electric handheld mixer, whip the egg whites on high until they form stiff peaks, about 3 minutes. Set the bowl aside.

STEP SIX: Using a whisk combine the egg yolks, kosher salt, and softened cream cheese. Whisk the yolk mixture until completely smooth and no cream cheese chunks are visible.

STEP SEVEN: Using a silicone spatula, carefully fold the egg whites into the yolk mixture a cup at a time. Gently fold until the whites are completely combined.

STEP EIGHT: Gently divide the mixture into 6 mounds on the parchment paper, spaced at least 3 to 4 inches apart.

STEP NINE: Bake for 25 to 30 minutes until golden brown.

STEP TEN: Allow the bread to rest and cool on the pan for 5 to 10 minutes.

STORAGE

IN THE FRIDGE: This is best eaten fresh. However, you can store any unused bread in the fridge for up to 3 days in an airtight container. (Please note that the texture of the stored bread will be different from when it is fresh.)

IN THE FREEZER: You can freeze the bread but it should be done within 12 hours of baking. Once it is cooled, store it with layers of parchment paper between each piece to stop them freezing together. Pop them in the freezer and leave for no more than 3 months. Defrost the bread then either eat cold or warm up in the oven for a few minutes if you prefer.

You can make sandwiches without bread or serve any place you would put a slice of bread without worrying about the carbs involved.

    Thank you for sharing this recipe.
    Quick question. Have you ever tried to use a plant based cream cheese for this recipe?
