- 4 Eggs
- 1/2 tsp Cream of Tartar
- 4 Tbl (2 oz) Light Cream cheese (softened)
- pinch Real Salt
- 1 packet Splenda (optional – don’t use for the Keto diet)
- Position two racks in the middle of the oven. Heat to 350.
- Prepare two baking sheets with parchment paper and cooking spray or Silpat liners. (They can leave a residue, even on the Silpat, so if you don’t like that, you will need to also grease your Silpat)
- Separate the egg whites and yolks into two mixing bowls.
- Add the cream of tartar to the egg whites and beat stiff with an electric mixer. They should stiffen after 3-5 minutes of beating. Do not over-beat.
- Whisk the cream cheese, salt and Splenda if using into the yolks until smooth.
- Gently fold the yolk mixture into the whites. The batter should be fluffy.
- Use a regular-sized ice cream scoop or 1/4 cup measure to spoon the batter onto the baking sheets. (A pretty good way to get the batter out of the cup and onto the baking sheet is with a small plastic spatula. That keeps the mess level down, and you can use the spatula to spread and shape them into discs.)
- Place 6 mounds of batter on each sheet so they have room to spread.
- Bake 20-22 minutes, switching racks halfway through.
- Let the bread cool completely before removing from the baking sheets.

Cloud Bread is Carb Free?
This entire recipe only has 7.91 carbs, if you include the Splenda. If you divide that by 12 servings, it’s only .66 carbs per serving, so although you can’t call it carb-free, it is very low carb.
It it Good to Freeze it?
- Yes. It freezes well. You will probably want to put it in individual bags or between layers of wax paper before you freeze it. To unthaw, just leave it at room temperature for a few minutes or defrost in the toaster for a few seconds. They will last in the freezer for a month or maybe even more.
How Much Calories It Contains?
- This recipe only has 31 calories per serving. This will vary based on brands used.
Which Kind of Taste it has?
- Well, it’s hard to describe. It doesn’t taste like bread. It doesn’t taste like eggs, although you can tell they are in it and it definitely doesn’t take like cream cheese. It tastes light, a little eggy, a little spongey. It don’t really think it tastes much at all, which is a good thing cause you basically have a blank canvas to add what you want to it. You can add sweet or savory ingredients to them. My daughter likes to put peanut butter on them.
Can We Refrigerate it?
- Yes. If you would like to reheat it, I think it’s best in the toaster oven or toaster, not the microwave.
