Ingredients to make Pao de queijo/Brazilian Cheese Bread

  • Tapioca /Cassava starch ... 250 gms
  • Milk ............... 1 cup
  • water ............. 1 cup
  • oil ................. 1/4 cup
  • egg................ 1
  • Parmesan cheese .. 50 gms (about 1 cup)
  • salt ........... to taste ( add carefully as the cheese is already salty)

How to make Pao de queijo/Brazilian Cheese Bread

  1. In a pan combine the milk, water and oil. Whisk it and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and add all the tapioca / cassava starch to it stirring briskly.
  2. Remove it in a large bowl.
  3. When it cools down a bit and you can handle it , add the egg, grated cheese and salt. Knead it well until everything is well mixed. The dough is usually a bit sticky.
  4. Take a small portion of the dough, Roll it to make it smoother and place it on a greased baking tray. You can rub some oil on your palms to make it easier.
  5. Repeat this until the dough is used up. Leave enough space in between as the breads expand on baking.
  6. Bake them for about 30 minutes or until they are golden and crispy at - 180 C (350 F) temperature.
  7. Please note that the baking time may vary according to the size and type of oven. So keep checking. This quantity makes about 15 - 18 breads depending on the size you make.

My Tip:

Pao de queijo taste the best when are just out of the oven freshly baked and crisp. They soften a bit after some time but still can be relished after warming them a bit.
