Are you struggling to get your hands on flour at the moment? Here’s a #SPARSubstitute that will really surprise you – no-flour bread, commonly known as cloud bread.

What you'll need:

4 large eggs, separated


1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar


2 ounces cream cheese


1 teaspoon mixed herbs


1/2 teaspoon sea salt


1/4 - 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder


1.Preheat the oven to 300 degrees.


2.Line two large baking sheets with parchment paper.


3.Separate the egg whites and egg yolks. Place the whites in a stand mixer with a whip attachment. Add the cream of tartar and beat on high until the froth turns into firm meringue peaks. Move to a separate bowl.


4.Place the cream cheese in the empty stand mixing bowl. Beat on high to soften. Then add the egg yolks one at a time to incorporate. Scrape the bowl and beat until the mixture is completely smooth. Then beat in the mixed herbs, salt, and garlic powder..


5.Gently fold the firm meringue into the yolk mixture. Try to deflate the meringue as little as possible, so the mixture is still firm and foamy.


6.Spoon 1/4 cup portions of the foam onto the baking sheets and spread into even 4-inch circles, 3/4 inch high. Make sure to leave space around each circle.


7.Bake for up to 30 minutes. The bread should be golden on the outside and firm. The centre should not jiggle when shaken.


8.Cool for several minutes on the baking sheets, then move and serve!
