Brazilian Cheese Bread (Pão de Queijo)


Been wanting to try a savoury bake for the longest time. Chanced upon this recipe online and thought it looked simple enough.

I poured the batter into mini soufflé cups instead of the muffin tray mentioned in the recipe. This yielded 24 mini bites.

When it was sufficiently cooled, my kids and I just couldn’t stop eating it. We were left with just 12 pieces in less than 15minutes. I can just imagine that it will pair beautifully with freshly cracked black pepper. Mm….shall try adding that the next round.

Recipe can be found here Brazilian cheese bread. I didn’t change anything in this recipe apart from the baking cases.

By the way, tapioca flour is gluten free, so this is a gluten free recipe.
