We saw some bizarre foods being invented too such as the ‘Frog Bread’.

The trend surfaced a few weeks back with some experimentation by various food bloggers online. The cloud bread is made with just three simple ingredients – egg whites, cornstarch and white sugar. It is important to whisk the mixture till white peaks form. The resulting mixture is baked in the oven for a couple of minutes at a high temperature. The delicious bread is crispy from the outside and surprisingly soft on the inside.

Many food bloggers have made their own versions of the cloud bread, adding interesting food colours to make it even more visually appealing. The bread recipe is quite simple and can be creatively made in a number of shapes and patterns. The name ‘Cloud’ in cloud bread comes from how similar it looks and feels. The fact that it uses just three or four ingredients makes it ideal for the lockdown time.
