Easy Brazilian Cheese Bread (Pão de Queijo)
Print Our tour of Brazil continues. After posting the moqueca recipe, several of you asked if I had a recipe for Pão de Queijo, or Brazilian cheese bread, sort of like a chewy cheese puff made with tapioca flour. As a matter of fact, I do. My friend Bill gave me this recipe years ago, a favorite from his Brazilian wife Silvia. I’ve made it several times, each time with different cheeses. There are several ways to make Pão de Queijo. The beauty of this recipe is that you can make a big batch of batter and just store it in the refrigerator (for up to a week), pouring out just as many mini-muffins as you want to eat. The only weird ingredient is tapioca flour. The recipe as presented is fairly basic. Ingredients Special equipment recommended: One or two mini muffin tins. *It helps when baking with eggs to start with eggs at room temperature. Method Hide Photos 1 Preheat oven to 400°F. 2 Put all of the ingredients into a blender and pulse until smooth. Eat while warm or save to reheat later.
