Light and Fluffy Cloud Bread Recipe!
In spite of the fact that cloud bread is generally regarded as being keto-friendly, I will have to say, I beg to differ on this point, at least when it comes to the recipe I am sharing today.
It is worth mentioning that because this recipe contains refined sugar as one of its main ingredients, many Keto dieters would argue that it definitely is not Keto-friendly, and I have to admit that I strongly agree with their argument.
What Is Cloud Bread?
Cloud bread is characterized by the softness of the bread and the lightness of a cloud, just like the cloud itself is characterized by the softness of the white dough, which resembles the lightness of a cloud.
It has an airy texture to it, which gives it a light feel. As far as the taste goes, it doesn’t have much flavor at all (probably just a hint of egg flavor). You can easily use it as a sandwich bread because it does not have a lot of flavor by itself, which will make it easy to use as a sandwich bread.
Is Cloud Bread Good?
In terms of cloud bread, I have to admit that I am pretty impressed with it.
My only wish is to know who invented it, so that I can give them some credit and perhaps even make a small bow of respect to them as well. Apparently, it originated around the time of Atkins, but I am not certain whether or not that is true.
Even though this particular recipe calls for cream of tartar, it is not absolutely necessary for cloud bread to contain cream of tartar and it can still be made without cream of tartar if you choose.
This recipe uses cream of tartar primarily to increase the speed with which the egg whites are beaten into stiff peaks, although stiff peaks can be achieved without the cream of tartar if the egg whites are beaten quickly enough to form stiff peaks…it will just take longer.
