Show of hands, who loves French Toast? French Toast is probably my favorite breakfast food. And biscuits. Ok, anything that’s bread and carbolicious. Yup we’ve just added another word to the Foodie Dictionary. Now French Toast is pretty simple right? You’ve got your eggs, bread, […]

♫ Lemme take you to Rio Rio! ♫ But seriously can we go? Pleeeaseeee?
Alright so we can’t actually go to Rio. (Sigh) I can dream. But how about bringing a little taste of Brazil into your home? Sound good? Today I present to you a fantastic recipe for Pao de Queijo which is Brazilian Cheese Bread. My mom and I made these for our girl’s night in and it was actually really simple. Yes guys, I didn’t fail. There’s hope for me. Today our star ingredient is… drumroll please… Tapioca flour! Have you guys heard of this? Am I the only one that didn’t know that it was a thing? Alrighty good people, let’s get to it!
Pao de Queijo (Brazilian Cheese Bread)
1/4 cup oil
1/2 cup milk
1 cup Tapioca flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup shredded cheddar or mozzarella cheese
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Blend all ingredients in a blender except the cheese!! Blend cheese in at the end. Pour batter into mini muffin tins and bake for 15 mins.
*Just a tip: I noticed that when we used brand name cheese, it sunk to the bottom of the bread. But when we used cheese that came from Sprouts (a healthy grocery store) the cheese was finer, floated in the batter, and was evenly distributed throughout the bread when it was done cooking. So consider going to your local farmers market or a store like Trader Joe’s.
Aren’t they cute? They taste even better than they look! Nice and crunchy and cheesy on the outside and somehow delightfully airy yet flavorful on the inside. Imagine a cheesy crunchy coating around a cloud. Then you bite into the cloud and there’s what… more cheese inside! Was that a weird image? That sounded a lot better in my head. Go ahead and try making these yourself! Maybe then my weird description will make more sense. Or not.
Do you have any simple Brazilian recipes that I could try? Comment below!
Happy Sunday! Until next time food lovers!
Ok so this isn’t from THE Coney Island (Random fact: I’ve never been to New York. Crazy right?). This cheese laden creation comes from Coney Island in Tulsa, Oklahoma. This little spot has been serving up hot fresh chili-cheesiness since 1926. What we have here […]
I live for Krispy Kreme doughnuts. I’ve defended Krispy Kreme doughnuts. Anytime someone has tried to rant about how amazing Dunkin’ Donuts is, I’ve had to say, “Uhhh excuse me, Dunkin’s got nothin’ on Krispy Kreme.” They just taste lighter and yummier and just…I don’t know, they’re just […]
