Introduction: Brazilian Cheese Bread (Pão De Queijo)
In this Instructable, I will show you how to make Brazilian Cheese Bread. This easy Pão de queijo recipe is so awesome and tastes just like the kind you get at the Brazilian steak houses like Rodizio's, Fogo de Chao, Tucano's, etc. If you love Brazilian cheese bread, give this recipe a try. And they are entirely gluten-free! If I can do it, you can do it. Let's get baking!
Don't forget to follow me and check out my other Instructables. :)
Follow the super easy steps below or watch the video tutorial or do both. :)
Step 1: Ingredients and Tools
- 2/3 cup milk (158ml)
- 1/3 cup olive oil (43ml)
- 1 large egg
- 1 tsp salt (4g)
- 1/2 cup cheese (cheddar, jack, feta, parmesan, etc.)
- 1 1/2 cups tapioca flour/starch (185g)
- Mini muffin pan
- Wire rack
- Cooking spray
Step 2: Blend Those Ingredients!
Ok, so this is really easy, wait for it...Preheat the oven to 400F/205 C.
Place all the ingredients in a blender and blend for a minute or two until well combined. Use a spatula if necessary after to scrape down any ingredients that got stuck on the sides. Sometimes some of the Tapioca flour/starch gets stuck.
Step 3: Mini Muffin Pan
Take a mini muffin pan and spray it with cooking spray. Or you can take some cooking oil and place it on a paper towel or clean kitchen towel and wipe it in the muffin pan.
Then fill up each cavity with the cheese bread batter. You should be able to get 24 of them.
Step 4: Bake Them
Now place them in the oven, middle rack, and bake them for 20 to 23 minutes until they puff up and get slightly golden brown. The bottoms in the cavities of the pan will be a little browner than the tops.
Remove them from the oven and allow them to cool for about 5 minutes in the pan.
Step 5: Enjoy!
Remove them from the pan and place them on a wire rack to cool completely. Since these don't have gluten in them they will taste different than normal bread. These are nice and chewy and cheesy and oh so delicious. Enjoy!
