Does Cloud Bread Actually Taste Like Bread?

March 22, 2016 | By | Comments (18)

Is it a pancake? Is it an omelet? Well, it’s both really. We gave this cloud bread a whirl, put a Cooking Light spin on it, and dressed it with sweet and savory toppings to test out all the possibilities. The result? It’s a perfectly- portable gluten-free canvas to hold your favorite toppings.

Warning: It does not taste anything like bread, nor does it have the texture. However, it is a great option to use if you’re wanting that bread-like feeling when you’re craving a sandwich. Because let’s be honest, sometimes the lettuce wraps just don’t cut it.

Most cloud bread recipes that we’ve seen use cream cheese, but Cooking Light‘s Nutrition Editor Sidney Fry wanted to put one of her favorite ingredients, Greek yogurt, to the test. We found we actually preferred the Greek yogurt texture and taste more than cloud bread made with cream cheat. It also cut fat and calories, which is always a plus. The total for one round? Just 32 calories. Now we can get on board with that!


3-Ingredient Cloud Bread (Makes 5 rounds; Serving size: 1 round)
2 eggs
2 tablespoons 2% Greek yogurt
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
pinch of kosher salt

The Toppings:

1. Smashed Avocado + Salt & Pepper
2. Ricotta + Strawberries + Honey
3. Provolone Cheese + Ham

Yield: 5 rounds (serving size: 1 round)

    I used baking soda, and it came out light and flaky. The only draw back was mine was a little burned, but it may be my oven or the fact that I used Siggi’s Icelandic yogurt not greek yogurt. (it still tasted good) I googled the difference between baking soda and baking powder and Google says baking soda with yogurt would create more bubbles. (making it light and flaky) Super yummy! I can not eat gluten, and this was the best ham and swiss I have had in a long time.🙂 I am thinking about adding some parmesan Cheese, garlic and basil to my next batch!

    It’s called bread, because it will hold a sandwich together!😉

    I switched to using Greek yogurt based on this post (vs cream cheese I had been using from other people’s recipes) and I think it comes out better.

    Also, I just experimented with savory toppings (pre-baking). First, sesame seeds. That inspired me to try this everything bagel mix. Fab!

  7. I Tried It: Cloud Bread | Smile. Strength. Stretch.

    […] to replace bread. Naturally, I had to give it a try when one of my challengers posted a link to this recipe in our challenge […]

    I live at 6000 feet above sea level and have a lot of problems with things not cooking right that I get off the internet, would love to see if it needs to be changed because of this.

    I used cream of tarter, since it wasn’t clear if the ingredients included baking powder or baking soda. Sprinkled the tops with crushed fresh rosemary & sea salt. Very good, but I’d say it seems more like a mini soufflé than bread! Either way, the GF guests tomorrow will have at least one GF item to enjoy with the meat, vegetables, and fruit salad.

    Are the calories and other nutrition info for the full recipe (not per serving)?

      It has to be the entire recipe… The eggs should only be 140 and the Greek yogurt is about 20. I would guess they are about 40 per.

    Same question as Colleen. Is it made with baking soda or baking powder?

    We made this and liked it very much! (I added some garlic powder) It is an alternative to corn tortillas to make a wrap. Or it could be a sub for pita/Naan bread. It is flexible and while delicate,it holds up to the task! I felt that the texture was fluffy like a white bread, so I understand that part, but I felt it tasted so much better than white bread. I’ve bookmarked it so I can make it again!

    Why is this called “bread”?

    Baking soda or Baking powder. Live view say soda, ingredients says powder.

    That looks good. I am not sure I am going to be able to try all of these recipes that look good.
