Step 1: Gather your Tools

1. Medium sized bowl (for mixing)
2. Muffin tin (yielding 12 muffins)
3. Whisk
4. Measuring spoon (1 teaspoon) 
5. Measuring cups (1 cup, 2/3 cup, and 1/3 cup)
6. Oven mitt
7. Oven
8. Paper towel 

Step 2: Gather your Ingredients

Picture of Gather your Ingredients
- 1 Egg
- 1/3 cup Olive Oil
- 2/3 cup Milk
- 1 & 1/2 cups Tapioca Flour -- I used Bob's Red Mill Tapioca Flour, found in the international foods or gluten free section at HEB.
- 1/2 cup grated cheese
- 1 teaspoon salt 

- Crisco (use only to grease the muffin tins)

...and that's my dog, Birdie, keeping me company in the kitchen!


Step 3: Mix the Ingredients

1. After making sure nothing is in your oven, turn it to 400 degrees -- this way, once you have completed all the steps, the oven will be at the right temperature to go ahead and pop in your muffins. 

2. Throw all the ingredients (excluding the crisco) into your mixing bowl. 

3. Stir with a whisk, until smooth. 

Step 4: Grease the Muffin Tin with Crisco

1. Smudge a bit (about the size of a US quarter) of crisco onto your paper towel. 

2. Rub along the sides and bottom of each muffin tin. 

Step 5: Pour Batter & Pop into Oven

1. Carefully pour the batter into the muffin tins. Each one should be about 1/2 to 2/3rd's full.

2. Pop into the oven for about 15 to 20 minutes, until light and airy with slight golden edges -- 15 minutes worked perfectly for me.

3. With your oven mitt, carefully remove from oven. 

Step 6: Final Product

Voila! Should be a light color, airy and slightly brown around the edges. 

Enjoy!

can all purpose or whole wheat flour be used in place of tapioca?

Oh no, I don't believe so for this recipe. There's something in the tapioca flour that causes it to thicken more quickly and adds some chewiness to the bread.

I thought maybe the dog was named "Crisco". Also, dog was probably looking adoringly at the ingredients and willing her Momma to turn her back for just one minute!

They look delicious!!! ...but... if there is no leavening agent in the recipe, how do they puff up so nicely?
Like popovers, steam rises the rolls and the egg provides the structure.

Oh I love these! I don't know why I thought it would be so hard to make! I should give it a try, thanks for sharing!

I've done everything and couldn't do a good one... Should I put another dog in it?
You forgot dog in the ingredients list. To look at you adoringly as you cook :)
