Be sure to let your cloud bread fully cool before you dive in! This will ensure the best texture.


You can store cloud bread at room temperature or in the refrigerator depending on how soon you plan to eat the rolls.


If you want to keep them in the refrigerator, let them cool and dry at room temperature for at least a day. Then, place them in a container or bag that is not completely sealed.

Some readers have also said that putting wax paper between the rolls keeps them from sticking to each other.


To store them for longer, you can also freeze them. I like to keep them in freezer bags with two rolls per bag. When I’m ready to use them, I just let them thaw at room temperature.

Keep time

Cloud bread can be stored at room temperature if you plan to eat it within a few days.

To keep the bread fresh for up to a week, I recommend storing in the refrigerator. And for the longest storage, freezing is your best option.

Before sharing the recipe, I wanted to go over some of the most asked questions about this keto bread substitute.

What does cloud bread taste like?

As long as you don’t deflate the egg whites too much, cloud bread will be light and airy with a neutral taste.

Because eggs are a main ingredient, cloud bread does have an eggy taste. However, most people don’t mind it. I find the cream cheese lessens the egg taste.

To add in more flavor, you can fold in your favorite herbs and spices or sprinkle them on top before baking. Garlic powder and onion powder are popular. Some have also added active dry yeast or nutritional yeast to give a more bread-like flavor.

Another reader suggested adding low carb sweetener and cinnamon for a sweeter treat!

Feel free to have some fun adding different flavors.

How can I make thicker rolls

To have the best bread consistency, be very gentle folding the yolk mix into the egg whites. You don’t want the egg whites to break down too much.

For taller bread, try to scoop the batter into tall mounds on your baking pan.

If you really want thicker cloud bread, you could modify the recipe by adding almond flour. Simply reduce the cream cheese to 2.5 ounces and mix in ¼ cup of almond flour to the egg yolk mixture.

This will add some carbs to the recipe, but the bread will have more texture. This is a good idea if you want to use cloud bread as keto hamburger buns for a big cheeseburger!

Who created cloud bread?

Egg bread has actually been around for a long time. I’m pretty sure the original was the Basic Diet Revolution Rolls recipe found in the 1972 version of the Dr. Atkins Diet Revolution book.

The original recipe called for cottage cheese. When Jamie at Your Lighter Side accidentally used cream cheese instead, she called her creation Oopsie bread.

Oopsie bread and cloud bread have been a popular part of the low carb community ever since.

You can find great tips for trouble free Oopsie Rolls here. And, there are tons of recipe variations on Your Lighter Side.

The rolls are more bread like when the egg whites are beaten until very stiff. The cream of tartar is preferred to help keep them stiff.

It's not recommended to double the batch as the heavier amount of yolks can flatten the egg whites easily. It's best to use only 3 eggs each time.

To keep the proper egg fast ratio, you'll want to spread ½ tablespoon butter onto each roll.

For thicker burger buns,reduce the cream cheese to 2.5 ounces and mix in ¼ cup of almond flour to the egg yolk mixture.
