Galaxy Cloud Bread Recipe (The Internet Made Me Do It)

Backstory:

I’ve been seeing this all over Instagram and thought it would be a a really fun thing to try. I wasn’t expecting to be much taste-wise, but I have to say I enjoyed its marshmallow-y texture. It’s pretty much like eating very slightly sweet air lol, but the outside is a bit chewy so that’s nice. MOST IMPORTANTLY It’s got that WOW factor (my entire family went like ‘wooooow’ when i opened it up) so definitely give this a shot to impress your folks.

uffff this cloud bread has got the LEWKSS

What you need:

  • 3 eggs whites 
  • 2 1/2 tbsp white sugar (I used caster sugar)
  • 1 tbsp cornstarch (can use cornflour also but cornstarch will give you glossy look)
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence (optional, if you don’t like the eggy taste/smell)
  • Food colouring, colour of your choice

Utensils required:

  • Medium-sized mixing bowl
  • Small bowl
  • Whisk/electric whisker
  • Baking tray with parchment paper
  • Spatula
BB: Before Baking

How to Do:

  1. Preheat your oven to 180c 
  2. Keep a big bowl for your egg whites and a smaller bowl to put your egg yolks in (trust me you don’t want to be running around with a half-open egg looking for a bowl)
  3. Separate your egg whites and and egg yolks, putting egg whites into the mixing bowl.
  4. Whip egg whites until it gets bubbly
  5. Add sugar little by little and whisk until you get soft peaks (when you lift the whisk it should lift and then bend over a bit)
  6. Add cornflour/cornstarch and vanilla essence and whisk until you get stiff peaks (when you lift the whisk it should stand straight up)
  7. The moment you get glossy, stiff peaks, STOP WHISKING!!
  8. Add food colour, starting with very little and gently fold the colour in. If you want it darker then you can add more
  9. If you want two or more colours, divide the mixture into two bowls and then add the food colour and fold it in
  10. Then line a baking tray with wax/baking paper (you can get the one I use here:)
  11. Gently add the mixture onto the baking tray, layering it for the multicolour effect. I added 1/3 of the pink first, then 1/3 of the blue and followed the same pattern until it was all on the tray
  12. Make sure it’s not too high up, otherwise it won’t bake properly. Smooth it down along the top and the sides until its about 6-7 cms (size of a small cake)
  13. Do this until you have a smooth outside surface – gives you a nice contrast against the airy inside texture.
  14. Bake it at 150c for 25 minutes – remember to turn down the temperature!! Remember it has to cook at a low heat for a long time for the inside to puff up and get airy, and the outside gets golden brown
  15. Let it cool a bit before taking it out, peel off the parchment paper and then break open the cloud bread for that “ooooooh” moment!! Enjoy 😀
Make sure to smooth this down (no matter how pretty it looks)

Tips:

  1. Make sure your eggs are cold. The colder they are, the easier it is to cleanly separate the whites from the yolks
  2. Don’t overbeat your egg whites, you will lose that glossy look and it will end up being grainy and wet
  3. Don’t wait too long to break open your cloud bread for that WOW moment. It’ll start deflating when it cools down lol
Don’t miss the colour in too vigorously – let it leave streaks for that marbled effect
