How to Make Cloud Bread

  • 3 egg whites
  • 30 grams white sugar (approximately 2-1/2 tablespoons)
  • 10 grams corn starch (approximately 1 tablespoon)

Whisk together egg whites in a bowl until frothy, then add sugar and corn starch and whisk until mixture forms peaks. Drop onto a cookie sheet in a dome shape, and bake for about 25 minutes at 300° F.

You can make a keto-friendly cloud bread, too. It skips the sugar and corn starch, but incorporates the egg yolks.
