BRAZILIAN CHEESE BREAD (PÃO DE QUEIJO)

Ingredients:

  • 4 cups tapioca flour
  •  1 1/4 cups milk
  •  1/2 cup water
  •  6 tablespoons oil
  •  1 1/2 cups grated parmesan cheese
  •  1 cups shredded Mozzarella cheese
  •  2 large eggs
  •  2 teaspoons salt

 

Procedure:

Step 1 – Preheat oven to 400F degrees with a rack in the middle.

Step 2 – Combine the milk, water, oil and salt in a saucepan and bring to a boil over medium high heat.

Step 3 – Add the tapioca flour to the bowl of a stand mixer and, once the milk mixture boils, pour it over the flour. Turn the mixer on and mix it well. The texture really white and sticky. With the mixer still on, add the eggs, one at a time.

Step 4 – Once the eggs are incorporated, add the cheese, a little at a time, until fully incorporated. The dough is supposed to be soft and sticky. However, if you’re worried it’s too liquid, add some more tapioca flour. To shape the balls, wet your hands with cold water and, using a spoon, scoop some of the dough to shape balls that are a little smaller than golf-sized.

Place the balls on a baking sheet covered with parchment paper and bring it to the preheat oven.

Step 5 – Bake for 15-20 minutes or until they are golden and puffed.
