Carb free cloud bread

Carb free cloud bread

For anyone who can’t eat grains or gluten, it’s pretty hard it is to find a decent bread substitute.

When all you want is for something to hold a sandwich together, getting the right consistency, or even getting any taste at all, is a tricky business.

But we think we’ve found the solution in Cloud Bread – even the name sounds yummy doesn’t it!

What you’ll need:

3 eggs separated

3 tbsp softened cream cheese

¼ tsp cream of tartar

1 tbsp honey

Method:

  • Set your oven to 300 degrees and line or grease two baking sheets. Carefully separate the eggs and in a small bowl mix together the egg yolks, cream cheese and honey until it’s a smooth mixture.
  • In another bowl and the cream of tartar to the egg whites and beat on high speed until they form stiff peaks.
  • Carefully fold the egg yolk mix into the egg whites until they are mixed thoroughly. Try not to lose too much of the air in the egg whites.
  • With a large spoon scoop 10 even rounds onto the baking sheets (about 4-5 inches across).
  • Bake in the centre of the oven for around 30 minutes, or until the tops are golden brown.
  • Remove from the pans and cool on a wire rack.
  • When they are fresh out of the oven, the consistency is crumbly and similar to cooked meringue.
  • Once completely cool, (you can store overnight in a plastic bag or Tupperware container) they will change their consistency, to a softer bread texture that is nice and chewy.

it looks lovely. but I wonder how much it would fill you up. Egg whites and cream cheese aren't particularly sustaining.

I have given up bread for lent and this sounds amazing to try. I can't believe I haven't heard of it before. Can't wait to try it. If it is tasty I will be incredibly happy as it's very difficult to stay away from bread.

I have never heard of this before, and I am quite up on gluten-free food. Sounds easy to make too, but I bet it doesn't taste anything as good as real bread!
