What is Cloud Bread and How Do You Make It? Inside the TikTok Trend

This fluffy, easy-to-make viral bread recipe is Instagram-perfect!

If you're an avid user of TikTok, chances are you've been seeing this dreamy viral recipe that was born from the many pandemic food trends.

So what exactly is cloud bread and how do you make it? Interestingly enough, cloud bread has been around for a while, but it became popular during the 1970s. It's a low-carb, gluten-free alternative to normal bread.

More common among keto dieters, this cornstarch-base bread can easily be made with just three ingredients in 30 minutes.

Check out the super easy cloud bread recipe below that will satisfy your cravings for carbs without actually committing.

Cloud bread recipe

To make your own cloud bread at home, you only need three ingredients:

  • 3 egg whites
  • 30g white sugar
  • 10g corn starch

However, to make that beautiful cotton candy-like colour, you'll also need to add food colouring. Some home-bakers tend to add some vanilla extract or strawberry extract as well for a bit of extra flavour.

How to bake cloud bread

Once you have your ingredients, whisk the egg whites together until they're frothy and bubbly.

Add your white sugar and cornstarch, and keep whisking the mixture until you get twin peaks on your whisk.

Place it on baking paper and baking pan. Feel free to shape the mixture into anything you want.

Bake it at 300F for 25 minutes and you're done!

Is cloud bread really bread?

Well, not really. It can be best described as one big meringue. But it's incredibly simple to make, and the colours and texture alone makes it exciting to rip open and eat.
