Cloud Bread

since indulging in lots of goodies during Christmas, I thought I needed to give my body a break and start getting healthier. So as I have cut out carbs I have not been eating bread. I love sandwiches so I thought I'd find a recipe for low carb bread . I saw lots of recipes and then came across  Cloud bread and I just had to make it.
It's delicious and fluffy and delicate and great for sandwiches too :) And best of all takes no time to make and requires just a handful of ingredients .

3 tbs of full fat cream cheese (philly)
3 medium eggs (separated)
1 tsp baking powder or cream of tartar
1 tsp sweetener (optional I used coconut palm sugar)
salt to season
pepper to season
garlic powder to season (optional)

Method and preparation:

pre heat your oven to 150 c/ 300
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

separate your eggs into too bowls.
Add the cream cheese and seasonings to the yolks and mix until you get a pale yellow smooth batter.
Add baking powder or cream of tartar to the egg whites.
Whisk your egg whites until they form stiff peaks.

Now very gently fold the egg yolk batter into the egg whites without deflating them .
Working as quickly as you can spoon dollops of the mixture onto the baking tray and shape them into bun sized circles.
Mine made six buns (tops and bottoms so it can make 3 sandwiches .
You can use two trays if you make them smaller.

Bake them in the oven for 18-20 minutes until they are golden brown.

These buns are very delicate so please wait until they are completely cool before attempting to remove them from the tray or they will break.

The backs of the buns.

You can enjoy them right away or let them cool and put them in a zip lock bag and in the fridge over night to eat them the next day when they are fluffy and chewy.

These keep on the counter for up to 4 days and in the fridge for 5 days. They can also be frozen to eat as and when you please :)

I hope you try this delicious cloud bread recipe. You won't be disappointed.

Here is a serving suggestion :)
