Secret Recipe Club: Brazilian Cheese Bread

Brazilian Cheese BreadI make Pao de Queijo quite often. For this month's Secret Recipe Club, I received the blog Burnt Apple and I was instantly drawn to Brazilian Cheese Bread. It was very similar to Pao de Queijo, but without the mini muffin pan. These cheesy bites were amazing! Even better than the recipe from my mom.  Miss F loved the "cheese puffs" and insisted on having butter on hers.  And she made a specific request to have them packed in her lunch box, so I know she really enjoyed them.  Please check out the links below to see what everyone selected this month for the Secret Recipe Club.
Brazilian Cheese Bread

2 cups tapioca starch
½ cup milk
3/8 cup oil
1 ½ teaspoons salt
½ cup water
¼ cup grated parmesan cheese
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1 egg

In a mixer bowl mix the tapioca starch together and set aside. In a large saucepan, bring the milk, salt, oil and water to a rolling boil. Remove the boiling mixture immediately from the saucepan and pour into the starch. With a dough hook, mix the wet and dry ingredients together until thoroughly mixed. Add the cheese and egg and continue kneading until smooth. Place a small amount of oil in your hands and form the dough into golf ball sized balls. Place each ball on a greased baking sheet. Bake for 25 minutes at 350 degrees. Eat warm.

Hmmm, I've never heard of a bread being made with tapioca starch, but they look delicious. Especially with yummy cheese added.

Kroger has it in the Natural Food section. I get it at the Asian Market where I eat crawfish. I can bring you a bag if you like.

BurntApple said...

So glad that you liked them! I love them, but have a hard time making them now because my good friend who taught me how to make them moved back to Brazil. Enjoy, and beautiful pictures!
