For those of you who don’t know, cloud bread is a bread that’s made with a fluffy white dough that’s baked in a “cloud” of steam. The steam makes the dough rise, giving it a fluffy texture and texture. It’s a type of bread that’s typically associated with French cuisine, and is used in places like the Loire Valley.
I’ve been wanting to try making cloud bread for a long time. I’ve had several friends ask me about it, so I was really excited when I found out that I had an opportunity to try it at the annual Taste of the Loire Valley event, where I live. It was an incredible event, and it’s a great excuse to visit the Loire Valley.
I was also excited because I figured that I would get to see some of the traditional French ingredients that are used in French cuisine, including some of the ingredients that I’m not able to eat, like gluten.
I decided to make a vegan version of the classic French bread, and I was really excited to see how it turned out.
