Description

This Cauliflower Cloud Bread is a delightful and easy-to-make low-carb alternative to traditional bread.


Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 medium cauliflower
  • 6 eggs, separated
  • 6 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 cup superfine almond flour
  • ¼ cup grated parmesan cheese (optional)
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • ¾ teaspoon salt

Instructions

  1. Prep the Cauliflower: Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and line your loaf pan with parchment paper. Separate the egg whites from the yolks and set aside.
  2. Rice the Cauliflower:  Remove the stem from the cauliflower and break it into florets. Pulse them in a food processor for 10 seconds or until the cauliflower resembles rice with a snowflake-like consistency. You’ll need about 3 cups of finely riced cauliflower for this recipe.
  3. Extract Moisture:  Transfer the riced cauliflower to a cheesecloth and squeeze out as much excess moisture as possible. You can work in batches for this step.
  4. Whip the Egg Whites: In a large bowl, use an electric hand mixer (or stand mixer) to beat the egg whites until stiff peaks form (approximately 2 minutes).
  5. Combine Wet and Dry Ingredients:  In a separate bowl, whisk together the egg yolks and olive oil. Add the almond flour, parmesan cheese (if using), baking powder, and salt. Mix until a batter forms. Gently fold in the riced cauliflower.
  6. Incorporate Egg Whites:  Using a spatula, gently fold the whipped egg whites into the batter in three batches, ensuring they are fully incorporated without losing their volume.
  7. Bake and Cool: Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan and sprinkle with an additional tablespoon of parmesan cheese (optional). Bake for 45-50 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean and the top is golden brown. Let the bread cool in the pan for 5 minutes before transferring it to a wire rack to cool completely before slicing.

Notes

  • For a richer flavor, use crumbled parmesan cheese instead of grated.
  • Toast the slices for a warm and crispy texture.
  • Experiment with adding chopped herbs or spices to the batter for extra flavor variations.
