By far the biggest TikTok food trend of 2020, cloud bread is an insanely fluffy (and optionally colorful) baked good. The recipe, which was popularized by TikTok user abimhn, gets its signature bounce from whipped egg whites. To make vegan cloud bread, some food bloggers have experimented with swapping in aquafaba.


  • 3 egg whites
  • 2.5 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • Food coloring (optional)
  • Vanilla extract (optional)


Preheat oven to 300°F.

Whisk egg whites until they become frothy by hand or in the bowl of a stand mixer. Once bubbly, add sugar and cornstarch. Add food coloring and vanilla extract if using. Whisk mixture until glossy, thick, and forming stiff peaks.

Scoop the mixture out onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Form into a round, “cloud-like” shape.

Bake for 20 to 25 minutes.
