If you’ve been on TikTok recently then you may be familiar with the cloud bread phenomenon. Simply look up #cloudbread and you’ll be bombarded with the fluffiest puffs of bread you’ve ever seen.

Surprisingly, it only requires three ingredients – egg whites, sugar and cornstarch.

We decided to give it a whirl and the results may surprise you!

Hear what happened:



  • Egg whites
  • Sugar
  • Cornstarch
  • Food colouring (optional)


  1. Whip the egg whites. Add your egg whites to a very clean, grease free bowl. Start to whip your egg whites on medium-low, until frothy and pale.
  2. Stir in sugar. Add the sugar, a little bit at a time on high, until the sugar dissolves and the egg whites start to foam up.
  3. Add the cornstarch. I like to sift the cornstarch in so that there are no lumps. Continue to whip on high until the egg whites become a glossy thick meringue that holds a peak. The egg whites are done when you lift the beater from the bowl and they hold a peak and look smooth and creamy like shaving cream If you tilt the bowl, the whites should not slide. Be careful not to over whip!
  4. Shape the cloud. Use a rubber spatula to scoop out the meringue and shape into a cloud on a parchment paper lined baking sheet.
  5. Bake. Bake in a low oven until golden and cooked through.
