Cloud Bread - The Recipe
More good news: cloud bread works with both sweet and savoury flavors alike and you only need three ingredients to make it: cream cheese, eggs and baking soda.
Start by preheating the oven to 150 °C.
Separate the whites from the yolks of the three eggs.
Add 60 grams of cream cheese to the yolks and mix until smooth.
Add a quarter teaspoon of baking soda to the whites and mix the batter.
Mix the two mixtures together gently.
Spread small circles of the dough on parchment paper and bake for 20 minutes.
Once ready try eating your fresh cloud bread like a sandwich stuffed with tasty fillings.
Or the spread on a little jam as you would classic bread or toast. It's up to you.
