Pao de queijo, Bread from Brazil

Bread rolls famous in Brazil

They are made with tapioca flour, are delicious with their center soft and nice smelling. When you form them into rolls, they end up being perfect little balls.

There are many cheeses you can use but we prefer all the time to use fresh cheese, or regular soft cheese.



2 ¼ cups of milk
4 ½ cups of tapioca flour
¼ cup of butter
5 eggs
½ oil
2 ½ grated fresh cheese
½ mozzarella cheese grated
¼ teaspoon of salt


Put in a pan the milk, oil, butter and the salt and make it boil. When it does, take it off the fire. Add the tapioca flour in four times to the liquid mixture, beating thoroughly each time. Add the eggs by one at a time, always beating well. When the dough is soft and well beaten, add the cheeses and beat it for some more minutes until it is soft again.
Once it is no too hot, that can be touched with your hands, put the dough in a floured table, knead it for a while and then make little balls and put them on a floured baking sheet-

Take them to a medium heat oven. Bake them for 25 minutes or until they are golden on top.

Delicious for the coffee break in the afternoon, with a little bit of butter inside-. Serve them hot. - South American Foods and Desserts
