How To Make Cloud Bread
Making Cloud Bread Is A Delicate Process
Now, even-though making cloud bread is easy, it is a delicate process. You can easily screw cloud bread up, and I certainly have in the past. However, if you follow my tips in today’s cloud bread recipe, you‘re guaranteed to have delicious results!
The MAJOR KEY is not over-mixing the egg yolks and egg whites when you combine them.
Cloud bread is actually an egg based bread, and the recipe calls for whipping egg whites up with a hand mixer until stiff peaks form. The whipping process creates a thick airy consistency to the egg whites, and maintaining this consistency throughout the recipe is the key to a successful batch!
My Cloud Bread Grocery List
- First and foremost, make sure you have a hand mixer like this one, because you’ll need it to whip the egg whites.
- Cream of tartar is an essential component to getting stiff peaks to form with your egg whites, so you’ll definitely need some of that.
- You’ll also need a large bowl like this one to mix all of your ingredients in.
- This cloud bread recipe makes 10 pieces, so make sure you have atleast 2 baking sheets because you’ll need to bake both sheets at the same time.
- By the way, make sure you have parchment paper, and cover it in baking spray, so the cloud bread doesn’t stick.

- Use a hand mixer to combine all of those ingredients into one another and set aside
- In another large bowl add the egg whites and cream of tartar and beat until super thick peaks develop in the bowl
- Once they do GENTLY add the whites mixture in with the yolks
- Try to keep as much "fluffiness" to the whites as you can while doing this
- Once combined, add to large spoonfuls -per slice of cloud bread - to a baking sheet lined with parchment paper (the recipe makes 10 pieces, so you'll need two trays)
- Bake the trays at 300 Degrees for about 30 minutes
