Pão De Queijo (Brazilian Cheese Bread)




This easy to make, tasty cheesey bread will not be sitting around very long, I usually make a double batch, everyone eats them up quickly!

Step 1: What You Need

1 egg
1/3 cup olive oil
2/3 cup milk
Scant 1 1/2 cups (170 grams) tapioca flour
1/2 cup (packed) Mexican farmer's cheese - queso fresco
1 teaspoon of salt (a little less to taste).

Step 2: Very Easy!

1 Preheat oven to 400°F. Grease a mini-muffin tin. Put all of the ingredients into a blender and pulse until smooth. You may need to use a spatula to scrape down the sides of the blender so that everything gets blended well. At this point you can store the batter in the refrigerator for up to a week.

2 Bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes, until all puffy and just lightly browned. Remove from oven and let cool on a rack for a few minutes.

Eat while warm or save to reheat later.

    Does it have to be tapioca flour?


    Those look delicious. Do you have any pictures of the individual steps?
