Cloud Bread Recipe

Cloud bread is soft and fluffy like a cloud! It's a great substitute for 'regular' bread as it is flour-less and low in carbs.

Ingredients

  • 4 eggs separated
  • 1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 2 ounces cream cheese softened
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 300 and line two baking sheets with parchment or silicone liners.
  • In a large bowl or the bowl of a stand mixer, beat together the egg whites and cream of tartar until stiff peaks form. Move the egg whites to another bowl.
  • Add the egg yolks and cream cheese to the bowl, and beat until smooth. Add the Italian seasoning, salt, and garlic powder, and mix until well blended. Add the egg whites to the egg yolk mixture, and gently fold until mixed, being careful not to deflate the egg whites too much.
  • Scoop the batter onto the prepared baking sheet using a 1/4 cup ice cream scoop or a spoon. Spread each spoonful of batter into a circle that is 3/4 inch thick (you should be able to fit six spoonfuls on each baking sheet).
  • Bake 30 minutes, until golden brown on the outside and firm. Let cool before serving.

Notes

The bread came out of the oven crisp, but got pretty soft overnight when I stored it in an airtight container. I would assume that you could crisp it up again in a toaster oven, but it's probably best eaten the day that it is made.
