Had a pretty chill day on Sunday. No big party for us this year but we still had plenty of food to eat! We made all our favorites and pigged out to our heart’s content. One of the things we made was Brazilian cheese bread. If you don’t know what this I highly encourage you to try it for yourself. It’s not just cheese on bread…nor is it cheese stuffed inside bread…its cheese incorporated into every little bit of the bread.
The batter is blended together to create bread that is entirely chewy and cheesy. It uses tapioca flour instead of regular flour and that’s where the chewiness comes from. The basic recipe is below but you can really use whatever cheese you want and add whatever you want to it. We’ve tried adding some jalapenos and other things but sharp cheddar is usually our go to. This is good for everyone since its vegetarian and gluten free. The only people who won’t like it is people who don’t like cheese. In that case more for you to eat!
1 egg (room temperature)
1/3 cup olive oil
2/3 cup milk
1 and 1/2 cup tapioca flour
1/2 cup packed cheese
1 teaspoon salt
1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Grease muffin tin.
2. Place all ingredients into blender and blend smooth. Can store batter in the fridge for up to a week.
3. Bake for 15-20 minutes, until all puffy and just lightly browned. Remove and let cool on rack.
What do you make when you need something that will please everyone?
