This genius pillowy light cloud bread recipe is perfect for gluten free diets or anyone who wants fresh bread quickly. This bread recipe takes approximately forty minutes to make and involves only four surprising ingredients, which makes this recipe easy for anyone to prepare at home. Not only is this bread recipe quick and easy, but it also presents a healthier version of bread that anyone can enjoy, as well as a pleasing airy texture.

This flatbread recipe follows similar principles to a sponge cake recipe, by using egg whites as a leavener. This recipe wouldn’t be the same without the egg whites, because when they are whipped to stiff peaks, they allow air into the batter, which gives this bread recipe its fluffy texture. Cream cheese is another crucial ingredient because it gives the batter the stability it needs to bake into rounds of bread. If yeast baking isn’t your thing, you should try this quick bread recipe. The results will surprise you since these puffs of bread are lightly sweetened and can be spread with jam or used as a replacement for sandwich bread. The type of sweetener isn’t indicated in this bread recipe, but since it only relies on one teaspoon, it is safe to say that the kind of sweetener is not essential to the structure of these bread. Use whatever sweetener you feel comfortable whether it is granulated sugar, liquid honey, or an artificial sweetener. A pinch of salt would also do wonders to bring out the simple ingredients of this easy bread recipe.

Healthy baking is sought after these days, but rarely are simple baking recipes this easy. This healthy easy baking recipe relies on few ingredients, little time, but proper culinary technique, since how the eggs are dealt with effects the results of this bread recipe. The egg yolks and softened cream cheese stabilize the batter so that you can easily dollop portions of it on your baking sheet while the whipped egg whites add an airy texture. When beating egg whites, it is challenging to know exactly how far to take them, but to determine if they are thick enough, they shouldn’t be able to budge in the bowl. A good way to test this is to turn the bowl over, because if they stay in place, you are ready to go with the rest of the steps of this recipe. Any egg whites should whip well for this bread, but older, room temperature eggs tend to whip up a lot faster and take on more air, than fresher, refrigerated varieties. These bread rounds don’t take their name from nowhere because they become cloud-like when dolloped on the baking sheet. Once baked, they flatten out quite a bit but retain a soft, fluffy interior that one might associate with clouds. Fun and easy baking recipes like this would intrigue anyone, but if you wanted something to get the kids into the kitchen, this easy bread recipe would be it.
