Keto Cloud Bread

Keto Cloud Bread

I want to start by saying I did not invent this ‘Cloud Bread’. I am sure there is a great story behind the concept, but I am ashamed to say I haven’t even researched what that story is – I simply wanted to give it a go myself and post my version of keto cloud bread. After a slightly failed first attempt (at trying other versions I saw online), I made it my mission to improve what I had seen drawing from my own experience in the kitchen. The recipe will make 6, but essentially this means 6 halves (in other words – 3 sandwiches / 3 burgers). If you want more, double the recipe and use a second tray when cooking. I must admit, it’s not my favourite ‘bread’ option, but worth a shot anyway as it may be yours. (Be sure to also check out the Breads section on this site for my other creations). These will keep well in the fridge for up to 2/3 days.

Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 150°C / 300°F.
  2. Separate the eggs, placing the yolks in a medium bowl and the whites in a large bowl. (The whites will not whip up if there is the tiniest amount of yolk in it. Separate your eggs in a small ramekin one at a time, just to be safe)
  3. In the first bowl of yolks, add the cream cheese, smoked paprika, mustard powder and a generous amount of salt and white pepper. Whisk well to combine and set aside.
  4. In the second bowl, add the cream of tartar to the egg white and whip to very stiff peaks. TIP: I have seen people substitute vinegar for cream of tartar, but I tried it and it didn’t work for me. Cream of tartar is the secret to beautiful meringues, so it’s worth a trip to the baking aisle of your store. (If you are whisking it manually, ensure you use a clean, dry whisk – and not the same one you combined the yolk mixture with. Remember, if there is a tiny amount of grease / yolk on the whisk, your whites will simply not whip.)
  5. Add the yolk mixture to the whipped egg whites, and fold in very gently using a large spoon or spatula. TIP: Folding is a very gently technique in patisserie which combines ingredients without knocking out the air you worked so hard to incorporate. Use a large circular motion to incorporate the mixtures. Even afterwards, do not knock your spatula on the side of the bowl.

  6. Use a large spoon to scoop 6 individual servings onto a tray lined with parchment / greased foil (I used two trays). Be very careful about not knocking any air out when you spoon the servings.
  7. Be very speedy about placing the tray(s) into the oven. Open and close the doors as quickly as possible so no heat escapes. Again (sorry to stress this), do not slam the trays down, the air is still at risk at being knocked out.
  8. Bake for exactly 15 minutes, then turn the oven off, without opening the oven door. Keep them in there for an additional 15 minutes with the oven turned off. As the oven temp slowly decreases, the cloud bread will gently cook further in the residual heat. In this way, you are not introducing sudden cold by opening the oven (causing flop) and it won't be cooking for the full 25-30 minutes (causing burnt eggy flavour).
  9. After the full 30 minutes, the oven doors can be opened, and the tray(s) can be removed.
  10. Allow them to cool slightly and then remove the keto cloud bread from the trays using a large, flat egg-lifter or spatula. Mine still stuck a little, despite the non-stick spray, so nudge them on all sides to gently lift them in one piece
  11. The full macro-breakdown (and allergens) can be found further down this page (keep scrolling), as well as the link to PIN THE RECIPE (for those on Pinterest). There is also a comment facility, so do let me know how you get on...

  1. I just tried these and they are so good, and your guide is so easy to follow. Can I just ask about the centres as mine are super moist and not the same as the outside so I was worried I made them incorrectly, is this normal as I have never made these before as I have only just become Keto. Thank so you much

    1. Hi Kimberley,

      I am thrilled the directions were easy to follow. There is moisture in the eggs and the cheese so you will not get a dry ‘bread-like’ texture in the centre anyway. As long as the eggs are cooked through, they will be safe to eat (ie – they shouldn’t be a gooey mess in the centre, like an underdone meringue.)

      My oven is a fan-assisted oven (not sure if that helps), but I can maybe suggest leaving them in a little longer next time (not too long, you don’t want a burnt-egg flavour).

      Enjoy – and please try some of my other recipes. Happy Cooking – and the best of luck with your keto journey, you will love it! :)
