Pao de Queijo – Brazilian Cheese Puffs – Tasty Tuesdays Linky

When I reviewed the recipes for last week’s International Recipes to Get You in the Olympic Spirit I noticed a dearth of recipes from South America. And with Brazil being the host country this year, I found this to be unacceptable. I need to start exploring the fabulous flavors of this continent. A quick search on Yummly gave me quite a few recipes to try, but I knew this Pao de Queijo (Brazilian Cheese Puffs) had to be first.

Pao de Queijo - Brazilian Cheese Puffs or Brazilian Cheese Bread - simple gluten free bread made with tapioca flour and cheese.

These mini muffins are so simple to make and adapt to your family’s taste. The only tricky ingredient is the tapioca flour. Yes, the same tapioca used to make pudding. Tapioca is made from cassava, a plant indigenous to South America that made its way to Asia (particularly South East Asia) and you can find it used in both cuisines. To find the flour in the US, check the Asian or gluten free sections of your grocery store or a specialty Asian market. Or use our affiliate link and order it on Amazon here.


There were plenty of different variations for this recipe, but I went with the dump it in the blender, pour and bake method.

For the cheese, I went with Parmesan. But, I may pick up some Queso Fresco next time to be a little closer to what is probably made in Brazil.
