Keto Cloud Bread – Low Carb Burger Buns
One would think that after living the Ketogenic way of life for over a year, I would have already made some type of “bread-like substance”, especially since I have always been a baker – but I have not attempted to make any type of bread.
I found this recipe for KETO CLOUD BREAD – LOW CARB BURGER BUNS which I discovered while searching for some lunch ideas (on Pinterest) for friends who are just starting their own Keto journey. So I thought to myself “Cindy, why not give this recipe a try?” So I did!
I read through the recipe and it seemed very simple. Reading through it and executing the following of the recipe is a WHOLE other thing. It seems like making these Keto Cloud Bread buns was fraught with problems – not because of the recipe but because of the one making them.
First off I struggled to separate the egg whites from the yolk. I got past that and then when it called for garlic powder I almost added chili powder instead. One thing I failed to pay attention to was, that the recipe was on an Australian website. In Australia, they use Centigrade instead of Fahrenheit for oven temps. It was clearly indicated on the recipe 180 c ( 375F ). But did I pay attention to that? NO! So I set the oven temp for 180F – Dah! Then I accidentally tipped the baking sheet and so my batter was no longer in the shape of a circle (please see photo).
So I finally got the baking pans in the oven and I set the timer for 20 minutes. After 20 minutes I took a look at them and they were not browning at all. So I reviewed the recipe and sure enough, there was 375F oven temp. So I increased the oven temp and reset the timer for 15 more minutes.
Really, this recipe is very simple if you pay attention to the directions.
Ingredients: 4 Large Eggs
1/2 tsp Cream Of Tartar
1/4 Cup Cream Cheese (55 grams)
1/2 tsp Salt
1/2 tsp Garlic Powder (Optional)
Directions: Crack the eggs and separate the whites from the yolks.
Crack the eggs and separate the whites from the yolks. Put all the whites into a bowl and whisk with an electric mixer for 1 – 2 mins.
Add the Cream Of Tartar and whisk again for another 1 min. The mixture should start making soft peaks
In another bowl, add the yolks and the cream cheese and garlic powder (optional), mixing on high until well combined. Gently fold this mixture into the egg whites.
Spoon out the final mixture onto a tray lined with baking paper. They do fluff up a bit in the oven so leave enough space to breathe!
Put in the oven at 180 c ( 375F ) for 15-20 mins until slightly golden brown on top. Serve and enjoy! Link to the recipe
By the time I got them out of the oven I was still in a “fasting” state from my last meal last night so I didn’t taste them. I offered to have Tim give them a taste, and he gladly obliged. Tim said, “it tastes something like what I imagine ‘Manna’ would taste like’. Please see Exodus 16 When the Israelites saw it they said: “What is it?”. Tim seemed to really enjoy the taste, flavor, and it’s light and airy texture.
I will definitely make these again but hopefully, without the complications I caused myself.
