Keto Cloud Bread

74 ratings

What can’t the wonderful egg do? Cloud bread is food science at its finest. This low carb alternative to white bread has blown every health-conscious foodie out of the water. The biggest factor in baking cloud bread successfully is air. The more you mix and handle your batter, the less air will stay within it, leaving you with flat, sad cloud bread. Happy cloud bread takes a little practice, but patience is all you need for this recipe!

Recipe Steps

steps 7

40 min

  • Step 1

    Before any mixing, pull out both your eggs and you cream cheese, and let them come to room temperature. Yes, even the eggs! Preheat an oven to 300 degrees.
    Step 1
  • Step 2

    In a mixing bowl with a whip attachment or a hand mixer, whip your cream cheese for about five minutes. This helps soften it more and incorporates air for fluffy cloud bread. Set the cream cheese aside.
  • Step 3

    Separate the eggs so you have three egg yolks and three egg whites. Put the yolks in your mixer and whip them until they becomes thicker - about 3 minutes. Then, whip in the cream cheese and let these ingredients mix until the yolks become pale in color and show air bubbles. Set this aside in a new bowl for later.
    Step 3
  • Step 4

    Wipe your mixing bowl and whip attachment clean. It is very important there is no leftover yolk in your mixer. Pour in the egg whites and whip them for about 30 seconds or until they get frothy. Add the cream of tartar. Continue whipping the egg whites until they make a meringue with thick peaks.
    Step 4
  • Step 5

    In 3 separate addition, gently fold the egg whites into your egg yolks. Go slow and gentle, so you don’t lose the air you have incorporated into your batter. Fold with a spatula until you get a consistent mixture.
    Step 5
  • Step 6

    Spray a sheet tray and use a ½-cup measuring cup to pour your batter into circles. Give enough space between each circle to let the cloud bread spread slightly. You must bake all the batter at once, or else it will separate and become too thin.
    Step 6
  • Step 7

    Bake the cloud bread for 20-25 minutes. To test for doneness, the cloud bread should easily remove from your sheet tray, and it will have brown edges and a slightly golden top. Cool on a rack before consuming.

    I used a small rectangular pan, baking powder since no cream of tartar"…added some cinnamon and a dash of monk fruit . Might whip the egg whites first in the clean mixer…before the yolks….mine were runny but still turned out great after baked

      Fry it like pancake. Before you flip it sprinkle with cinnamon and granular monk fruit. Very much like french toast. Next time I am going to add a teaspoon of vanilla extract to the yolks mixture.

        Just made this and the avocado cloud bread this morning. Can it be frozen or kept for a couple of days?

          I didn't have cream of tartar or mascarpone to hand (I'll get some for next time) but did have baking powder and soft cheese. I hand whisked the egg white (no need for weights tonight) and made sure the stiff peaks were there. Gently incorporated the 2 mixtures. Baked at 150c for 20 mins and they came out perfect 👌. I had them as bread with bacon and eggs. Will definitely make them again.

            I don’t think the calorie calculation is right here, 3 eggs and 3 spoons of cream cheese has got only 342 calories and this makes 12 cloud bread! How does it possible 1 bread has got a 100 calories??

                        When your missing bread, this really does the trick! I have used it for a snack with almond butter, it’s a great fake biscuit for eggs in the morning and also for burgers and sandwiches.

                          I don’t understand how this can be used for anything like a burger or a sandwich. It’s extremely fragile and falls apart at any sort of strain

                            I just made this recipe and they turned out amazing, however I got 4 clouds. I used 1/2 cup to measure out. Is that the amount everyone gets with this recipe?

                              Yes, I wondered too how many clouds this recipe is supposed to make using 1/2 cup each as a measure?

                              You may try reducing your oven temperature to 275 degrees and reducing the baking time.

                            Good for something different and it’s easy to change the flavors when making small batches. I’m sometimes sweet and sometimes savory or plain like these. Thank you for sharing.

                              These are basically fluffed eggs not bread. Should change the name.

                                This was AMAZING. I made BLT’s with it. I also added garlic & herb Mrs. dash to my mix before baking. It was not eggy like other bread.

                                  this would be great with the low carb philly cheesesteak recipe

                                    So good - the eggs have to be room temperature to whip up. I added roast beef and horseradish mayo - yummer
