HOW TO MAKE CLOUD BREAD

Cloud bread has always been known as a low-carb alternative to traditional bread. Because its cornstarch base is derived from the crop itself so it's also free of gluten naturally. Recently, many keto dieters have turned to cloud bread to satisfy their cravings for carbohydrates without sending their digestionreverberating off ketosis.

IS CLOUD BREAD ACTUALLY HEALTHY?

Dieters may be inclined to experiment by making their own cloud bread at home because it has so few ingredients that are easily available at your nearest market. Almost any recipe you make will refine cornstarch's thickening abilities, despite its reputation in majorly processed foods. However, cornstarch shouldn't be too much of a concern here. Cornstarch can be a concentrated source of carbohydrates, although you normally use only a small amount in a recipe. To make its impact minor. Adding that one tablespoon contains 30 calories and 7g of carbohydrates. It is void of fiber and has very little nutritional benefits. Although it serves a major culinary purpose in certain dishes.


The cornstarch base in cloud bread is used to actually get this bread to rise that’s why you might find it hard to equally swap it for a common cornstarch substitute in this recipe. In case you like doing kitchen experiments, you can also try swapping cornstarch for an even healthier option in your choice of cloud bread recipe. Arrowroot starch is a good substitute as it is flavorless and free from nuts, gluten, dairy, soy, or corn but it adds that extended heat in the oven that might cause the bread to lose some of its signature "fluffy-ness”.


You probably already own all the ingredients.

  • 3 large eggs, room temperature
  • 1.5-ounces cream cheese softened
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • Here’s the complete recipe:  

  1. Gather your ingredients together. 
  2. Make sure that the eggs and cream cheese are both at room temperature.
  3. Pre-heat the oven to 300F. 
  4. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  5. Separate the eggs. Place the egg whites in a large mixing bowl, and the egg yolks in a smaller mixing bowl.
  6. Using a hand mixer, beat the egg whites on high until stiff peaks form.
  7. Add the cream cheese, salt, and garlic to the egg yolks. Using an electric mixer, mix these together until they are smooth.
  8. Add about 1/3 of the egg yolk mixture into the egg whites and gently fold together.
  9. Once incorporated, add the remaining egg yolk mixture into the egg whites and fold together, making sure there are no white streaks in the batter.
  10. Scoop the batter onto the parchment-lined baking sheet.
  11. Gently spread into a circle. The more you spread the circle, the larger and flatter the cloud bread will be.
  12. Bake for 15-18 minutes, or until slightly golden brown.
  13. Let cool on the baking sheet, then remove to cool completely. Use the cloud bread as desired (it’s great as sandwich bread or as a burger bun)!
  14. Makes a total of 3 servings of Keto Cloud Bread (2 slices per serving). Each serving comes out to be 122 calories, 9.7g fats, 1.3g net carbs, and 7.2g protein.


WHAT CAN I EAT WITH MY KETO CLOUD BREAD?

Cloud Bread is one of the most all-around bread recipes you will come across on keto. Its veracity and delicate flavor make it the perfect hamburger bun, bread roll, or sandwich bread. Other than using it as a bun or sandwich bread, give these keto-friendly options a try as well:

  • Cloud Bread Pizza — Prepare one or two larger pieces of cloud bread, bake through, let it cool, then top with your preferred keto-friendly pizza toppings. Now you have to put the broiler on and place your cloud bread pizza back in the oven until your toppings reach the desired texture.
  • Keto Chicken or Tuna Salad Melt — Let the bread cool, top it with keto tuna or chicken salad and cheese. Put it back in the oven to let the cheese melt.
  • Cloud Bread with Keto Nutella — Make some sugar-free Nutella. Then spread on your bread and Ta-daa you’re done!
  • Scale it up for a Keto Cloud Bread “Loaf” — This way, you can take out the exact number of slices you want without having to thaw out a whole loaf.


Make the Dough’s Shape slow and carefully  

You don’t have to overthink the half-dome shape too much, but you must remember that what you put in the oven is pretty much what you’ll pull out of the oven that means you must try to smooth over any bumpy edges and ridges if you want the perfectly shaped “cloud bread”.


Do I Need to Cool the Bread After Baking?

Yes, let any leftovers cool completely before storage. However, if you are planning to use the bread right away, just let it cool for around 10 min and enjoy your keto cloud bread.
