How to Make Cloud Bread
To make the carbed up version of cloud bread, you’ll need three egg whites (or half a cup), two and a half tablespoons of sugar, and one tablespoon of cornstarch. Whip the egg whites in a bowl with a hand mixer until they’re frothy, then add the sugar and cornstarch, and continue to whip until the mixture is thick and well-integrated. Next, cover a baking sheet in parchment paper. Then, spoon your cloud bread “dough” into a loaf shape on the baking sheet, and bake at 300 degrees Fahrenheit. Your bread loaf will be ready in about 25 minutes. That’s it!
Users on Tik Tok are making even more fun with the cloud bread trend by adding in other ingredients like food coloring, nuts, and vanilla extract, so feel free to play around! Cloud bread is a tasty snack to eat on its own, or you can slice up your loaf and use it for sandwiches, or even as a buttery side with your breakfast. Check out the video below to see for yourself.
To make the no-carb version of cloud bread, simply swap the cornstarch in the first recipe for three ounces of cream cheese or cottage cheese, replace the sugar with 1/8 teaspoon of sea salt, and follow the same instructions. You can also feel free to add herbs like dried Italian seasoning to this savory cloud bread recipe, if desired.
