Light & Airy 3-Ingredient Cloud Bread Recipe Is Low-Carb Heaven by 30Seconds Food

Light & Airy 3-Ingredient Cloud Bread Recipe Is Low-Carb Heaven

Cloud bread became all the rage when the keto diet gained in popularity. Made of eggs and cream cheese, this bread substitute is airy, keto-friendly, light, low-carb and low in calories.

The cloud bread is super simple to make, even if you're not a baker. After egg whites are whipped to stiff peaks, egg yolks, cream cheese, cream of tartar, sea salt and optional seasonings are added. The batter is spooned into mounds on parchment paper-covered baking sheets and baked for about 25 minutes or until golden. See, it's really easy!

Not sure what cream of tartar is? Cream of tartar is a white powder that's made from tartaric acid, a byproduct of the wine-making process. It's a common baking ingredient used to help stabilize egg whites in cakes and meringues. It's also in most snickerdoodle cookie recipes.

This easy keto cloud bread recipe can be used for sandwiches, as a side dish or even turned into a pizza by adding sauce and toppings.
