Cloud Bread


7 people made this

If you are on a gluten free or low carb diet, you can still enjoy cloud bread! It's made with only 3 ingredients: cream cheese, eggs and baking powder. Fresh out of the oven, they are fluffy and light. Storing the cooked buns overnight in a plastic food bag adds some elasticity to them so they become more bread-like.

Serves: 8 

  • 2 tablespoons cream cheese
  • 2 eggs, separated
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder

Preparation:10min  ›  Cook:17min  ›  Ready in:27min 

  1. Preheat oven to 150 degrees C. Line a baking tray with baking paper.
  2. Mix cream cheese and egg yolks together until smooth.
  3. Place egg whites and baking powder in a glass, metal, or ceramic bowl then beat together until stiff peaks form.
  4. Fold cream cheese and egg yolk mixture gently into egg whites until just combined and light yellow in colour.
  5. Spoon the batter onto the prepared baking tray in mounds about 10cm in diameter, flattening peaks with the back of the spoon.
  6. Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown, 17 to 20 minutes.


If cream cheese is very cold or solid, place in a microwave-safe bowl and warm in the microwave at 10-second intervals until softened, about 30 seconds. Cool to room temperature, about 5 minutes, before mixing with egg yolks.

Fluffy and chewy at the same time, these taste like a spongy omelette. Thank you for the recipe. - 25 Feb 2016


Mine was a total flop. I can only presume I didn't beat the egg whites into stiff enough peaks. Mine turned out as flat as pancakes. Tasted OK though. - 25 Feb 2016
