Brazilian Cheese Bread: Pao de Queijo

Posted on

Pao de Queijo  translates into 'Cheese Bread' in Portuguese.
These are absolutely moreish. If you have one, you're not going to be able to stop.
It's no ordinary cheese mixed with normal bread. The key ingredient in this is the tapioca flour.

Now I've never travelled to Brazil, so I have no idea if these are similar tasting or texture to traditional Brazilian cheese bread. Although from what I've investigated, mine don't look quite how they should. They should be really puffy and dome like. But I can tell you that either way, they're delicious!

I really want you to try these. Try these and I want to know if you could stop at one.
I definitely couldn't!

Brazilian Cheese Bread:

1 large egg
2/3 cup of milk
1/3 cup of olive oil
1/2 grated cheese. (I used mozzarella because I love the taste and the stretchy cheesiness)
1 1/2 cups of tapioca flour
1 teaspoon Murray River Salt ( or sea salt)
