If you’ve been spending your days lazily scrolling through your Facebook/Instagram/Tiktok feed lately, you might’ve noticed people trying their hand at making Cloud Bread. What is Cloud Bread anyway?

The measurement and exact ingredients are critical in this recipe so that you can achieve that dreamy, fluffy texture of Cloud Bread. Oh, and its keto-friendly.
Each slice of your Cloud Bread “loaf” is baked separately and maintains a soufflé-like texture when it first comes out of the oven. Be patient and wait a while (like a few hours) and the texture becomes more bread like, so it starts becoming similar to regular bread.
Taste-wise? “Light, airy, fluffy, mild tasting – not eggy at all…” said many a homecook after trying their hands at it. Just like regular bread, you can add all sorts of fixings to make it your own – orange zest, lemon zest, rosemary and garlic salt, the list goes on.
