About this recipe: If you are on a gluten free or low carb diet, you can still enjoy cloud bread! It's made with only 3 ingredients: cream cheese, eggs and baking powder. Fresh out of the oven, they are fluffy and light. Storing the cooked buns overnight in a plastic food bag adds some elasticity to them so they become more bread-like.


Serves: 8 

  • 2 tablespoons cream cheese
  • 2 eggs, separated
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder

Prep:10min  ›  Cook:17min  ›  Ready in:27min 

  1. Preheat oven to 150 C / Gas mark 2. Line a baking tray with baking paper.
  2. Mix cream cheese and egg yolks together until smooth.
  3. Place egg whites and baking powder in a glass, metal, or ceramic bowl; beat together until stiff peaks form.
  4. Fold cream cheese and egg yolk mixture gently into egg whites until just combined and light yellow in colour.
  5. Spoon the batter onto the prepared baking tray in mounds about 10cm in diameter, flattening peaks with the back of the spoon.
  6. Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown, 17 to 20 minutes.


If cream cheese is very cold or solid, place in a microwave-safe bowl and warm in the microwave at 10-second intervals until softened, about 30 seconds. Cool to room temperature, about 5 minutes, before mixing with egg yolks.

came out great, thank you! - 18 May 2016


I wish you had mentioned that the ingredients needed to be room temperature. I wasted two perfectly good eggs as this recipe didn't work. - 14 Apr 2016
