About this recipe: Pao de Queijo is a Brazilian cheese bread made with tapioca flour. They’re puffy and chewy, like Japanese mocha, and perfect finger food, great for dipping! This Brazil recipe is really simple and will not take you long at all. This recipe is also great for coeliacs as tapioca flour is gluten-free.
Once made, the batter will keep in the fridge for up to a week.
Perfect with a caipirinha!
I've made these a few times now and I like to add herbs (rosemary and thyme) and/or some mustard powder for a little extra kick. I must make them a little big as the first time I only filled a 12 piece muffin tray and last night I only managed to make it spread to 8 buns! They were a little large, but still taste good! Something gluten free that tastes good, it's amazing! - 11 Nov 2015
