The first time I saw the video on Tiktok, I wanted to try it immediately. It is quite hard to believe that it only needs three ingredients, yet it can create such fluffy and beautiful cloud-looking bread!

I did some research first and then I decided to make it. Let’s try this 3 ingredient bread!

What is Cloud Bread?

Cloud Bread is a fluffy, giant puff bread made of egg whites, sugar, and cornstarch. It is basically a softly baked giant meringue.

Maybe some of you are not familiar with meringue. Let me explain: meringue is a whipped egg whites with sugar.

When baked, meringue tastes very soft, light, and crispy. Maybe you have seen lemon pie with meringue on top, a little burnt on the skin.

Let us go through the three ingredients more deeply!

Cloud Bread Ingredients

Egg whites

This is the main ingredient that you cannot skip or substitute. Make sure your egg white is fresh. Please remember that not one bit of egg yolks should be in the egg whites.

Another thing to make sure is that your mixer tools should be clean. It has to be free of water or grease. Otherwise, the egg white will not whip up.

Sugar

Sugar will help stabilize the egg white and develop into meringue. It will also help the egg white be more fluffy.

Cornstarch

Cornstarch will help make the meringue shiny. Moreover, it helps absorb the extra liquid, so the meringue looks more sturdy.

Food coloring

This is optional. Use this a little bit to make it more fun and colorful.
