Oopsie Bread Review
Before delving too deep into this oopsie bread recipe, I’d like to mention that oopsie bread is meant to be bread-like and doesn’t taste exactly like bread. It’s delicious, but if you go into this expecting a French baguette, you may be disappointed!
That said, I’ve received many incredible oopsie bread reviews! People use this oopsie bread recipe as low carb hamburger buns, sandwich bread, or turning it into a dessert — get creative! One glance at the oopsie bread nutrition below will make you never want to turn back!
Oopsie Bread Recipe Ingredients + Swaps
This oopsie bread recipe requires only 4 ingredients! All of which are low carb shopping list items you probably already have in your pantry or fridge:
- Eggs: This is what adds the “fluff” to our oopsie bread recipe.
- Cream of Tartar: This helps the eggs form firm peaks, but don’t worry, you won’t be able to taste it, promise!
- Cream Cheese: This adds to the base of the bread. If you don’t have this on hand, make oopsie bread without cream cheese using cottage cheese or low carb greek yogurt — I will say I MUCH prefer the taste of this oopsie bread recipe with cream cheese.
- Erythritol: My favorite keto sweetener. If you don’t have erythritol, or if you prefer another low carb sweetener, use that instead!
Important Tips for Making Oopsie Bread
First, and most importantly, when making oopsie bread, it’s all about getting the egg whites as fluffy as possible. You’ll need an electric hand mixer for this, and a little TLC in handling those egg whites!
I mix the egg yolk bowl of ingredients first, since they’re less temperamental. Then clean and dry the mixing beaters — you don’t want to mix the yolks with the whites or it’ll be harder to achieve what we’re looking for.
Beat the egg whites and cream of tartar until they’ve reached firm peaks — meaning, your egg whites stand up straight when you lift the beaters out of the bowl. Be sure to mix in all lingering egg whites by moving your beaters around, there may be some hiding at the bottom of your bowl!
For a visual reference, check out this tutorial:
Gently, using a rubber spatula to fold the oopsie bread recipe ingredients together. Only handle these ingredients as much as you need! We want to keep as much air in those egg whites as possible.
Using a spoon, add a dollop of the oopsie bread recipe to a lined baking sheet. Keep in mind that oopsie bread doesn’t rise much! So what you add to the baking sheet is what your bread is going to look like.
The closer to the bottom of the bowl, the more you may notice the mixture becoming more liquidy — I found about 2 scoops worth in my bowl. You can either throw this out, as it won’t fluff up like our other rolls, or place it on a baking sheet. It’s actually really delicious, especially with some sweet cream cheese!
When it comes to how to store oopsie bread, I keep it in a ziplock in the fridge. I’ve even frozen oopsie bread with great success!
I’ve read many forums and recipes suggesting that doing this will make this oopsie bread recipe taste more bread like the next day — which I haven’t found this to be true, but if that has worked for you let me know!
The frosting is optional. While testing this sweet oopsie bread recipe, all I could think about was my Mom’s red velvet whoopie pies! Hence the cream cheese frosting — although not the same, this oopsie bread recipe is kind of like a low carb whoopie pie!

Oopsie Bread Recipe
Preheat the oven to 300°.
Grab the butter and cream cheese for the frosting, and place them on the counter so they can soften as you prep the remaining ingredients.
Separate the egg whites from the egg yolks into two medium bowls -- I do this by cracking the egg in half and passing the yolk between the two halves of the egg shell, at the same time allowing the egg white to spill into the bowl. You can also crack the egg into your hand, and use your fingers as a "drain", allowing the egg white to spill into the bowl.
In the egg yolk bowl, add cream cheese and erythritol. Mix until there are no remaining lumps. If you plan to use the same utensil to mix the egg white, clean off the utensil and dry - you don't want any yolks in the egg white mixture.
In the egg white bowl, add the cream of tartar. Using an electric hand mixer mix until the eggs whites form firm peaks.
Gently fold the egg whites into the egg yolks, you want to keep as much of the air in the mixture as possible (the airy-er the fluffier)
Using a spoon, place by the dollop (depending on how large you'd like your bread slice to be) onto a parchment paper lined baking sheet, making sure to leave at least an inch between each dollop.
Bake for 25 minutes, or until they become golden brown.
While the bread is baking, place the ingredients for the frosting in a medium bowl and mix using an electric mixer, until everything is combined.
Once the bread is done cooking, pull it out of the oven and allow it to cool.
Spread a thin layer of frosting on the bread — I find this is best done when the frosting is soft, as oopsie bread is very delicate.
Sprinkle some berries or whatever you’d like on top and enjoy!
- The bread without the frosting isn't super sweet! If you'd like to skip the frosting, add more sweetener to the bread 🙂
