I want to start by saying I did not invent this ‘bread’, nor the term ‘Cloud Bread’. I have seen this concept referred to as Oopsie bread in places too – and I am sure there is a great story behind it but I am ashamed to say I haven’t even researched what that story is. I was too excited to try it out and post my version. I initially followed a popular recipe that everyone seemed to use, but I tried it and found it left out a couple of essential techniques. Ones that would improve flavour and prevent disaster (having gone to culinary school, these were glaring omissions to me). Anyhow, after a slightly failed first attempt using said recipe, I made it my mission to improve what I had seen out there drawing from my own experience in the kitchen. My recipe below may not be for everyone, but for the Keto Community around the world, I am sure it will make you very happy! 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 (they can store 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. See the video link at the bottom of the recipe for the technique I quickly filmed. 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 little 'breads' 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
