Keto Cloud Bread FAQ’s
Cloud Bread (also known as Oopsie Bread) is a high protein, low carb, gluten-free bread alternative favoured in Keto diets. While it might be all the craze right now, Cloud Bread dates back to the 70s’ when the Atkins diet first hit the scene.
Light and airy, the bread has a delicate, crisp texture on the outside, not unlike meringue when freshly baked. When they cool, they take on more of a bread-like texture. It is also very versatile, with lots of possible flavour variations. It is a great bread alternative for those on a diet or anyone with dietary restrictions.
Yes, you can. The cream of tartar is a stabilizer that helps the egg whites form stiff peaks faster. You can leave it out; you will have to beat the whites a bit longer to get those nice stiff peaks.
Yes, it is possible to use mascarpone or ricotta cheese instead. Some Oopsie Bread recipes use Greek yoghurt but make sure it’s not light yoghurt as you want it to be thick.
Yes, you can. Freeze them first in single layers between baking paper, so they don’t stick. Once frozen, you can transfer them to a freezer bag. They will keep for about a month in the freezer. Defrost overnight in the fridge.
Storing and Reheating Keto Cloud Bread
Like any bread, cloud bread is best eaten fresh, ideally within 8-12 hours of baking. But it will keep in an airtight container for a few days in the refrigerator. Make sure you store them in single layers between baking paper to prevent sticking.
It is best to reheat defrosted cloud bread before eating. Pop the bread slices in the toaster on a low setting or in the oven. Either way, keep an eye on them, so they don’t burn.
Tips for Cooking Cloud Bread
- Even if using baking paper, still oil the paper. This is a very sticky bread.
- When spooning the mix on the tray, leave enough space for them to spread.
- Let them cook for 20-25 minutes or until golden around the edges. Note: Cloud Bread cooks at a much lower temperature than normal baking.
- Use two baking trays and cook both batches at the same time. Much like merengue or souffle, the mixture needs to be light and airy. If left to sit too long before cooking, it tends to lose air, so the bread won’t bake as airy and spongy as it should.
- Don’t open the oven during the baking process; again, like souffle or merengue, the bread will deflate.
