CLOUD BREAD? What in the world is that? Why would anybody want to create a bread that does not have a chew to it and taste almost as fluffy as eating the clouds. This is something that irks me so I did a google search on what exactly is cloud bread. A bunch of Keto recipes came out. Now great, we know they are keto but what’s next? No carb… Wow that’s even better isn’t it. Eating bread without the carbs. Someone must have invented magic. And we are about to find out whether such magic exists and whether it’s worth the trouble to make them.
Cloud bread is actually really simple to make. It uses ingredients that are so common in any kitchen pantry. Too good to be true! If there ain’t no carbs in this, I am definitely down to try this. Most of the recipes online don’t differ much in terms of basic ingredients- eggs, cream of tartar and cream cheese. Some recipes add herbs to it to make it taste more like ordinary bread. I decided my first cloud bread has got to have some kind of herbs inside. So here I am one day trying to make some keto recipes. Cloud bread, you’re my humble number 1. Please prove a point and make me love you forever.
Part of the step involves beating the egg whites separately till stiff peaks. Any baker would know that whipping egg whites separately from yolks will help create a lighter end product. That’s because you are whipping air and creating air pockets throughout the entire batter. Similar to how you make Angel cakes and Chiffon cakes, this one utilizes the same techniques. I AM INTRIGUED!
1. You start off with putting egg yolks, garlic powder, salt, herbs and cream cheese in one bowl
2. Put the egg whites in another bowl. Make sure the egg whites are free of egg yolks
3. Beat the egg whites till stiff peaks
4. It should stand up like this
5. Mix the cream cheese, herbs and the rest of the ingredients until well mixed
6. Add the egg whites into the egg yolk batter
7. Fold the egg whites gently into the egg yolks until well incorporated
8. Pipe blobs of circle with diameter 2.5 -3″ onto baking paper and bake at 150deg celcius in a preheated oven for 30-35mins.
So I did a small batch of cloud bread, incase nobody wanted to eat them. They tasted amaaazzingggg… Bread without the carbs.. That’s pretty much a winner. I’ve seen youtube videos of people making pizza crust out of cloud bread or even burgers out of them. There are so many innovative ways to use them. Endless possibilities really. I decided to make a ham and cheese “burger” for my hubby and he didn’t spot anything unusual. Passed!
It taste best when it comes right out of the oven but I tried putting it in the fridge overnight and toasting them in the morning and it was still delicious! I enjoy mine with peanut butter! The recipe below makes around 9 pieces of bread that are around 2.5-3” in diameter
