The Brazilian Cheese Bread recipe is from the archives, originally posted in 2013. I totally forgot how these cheesy bread could be so addictive. I was babysitting this past weekend and made the bread for my nephew and his friends. They devour most of them very quickly. 

For many of us, bread is bad because of our love-of-hate relationship with carbs. Tapioca flour is naturally high in carbohydrates and is considered a good gluten-free flour. It makes great tapioca waffles.

I have tried the recipe with both whole milk and Lactaid milk.  The bread prepared with Lactaid milk had a lighter texture than the whole milk. Adding paprika spice is a great option for color and taste. Reheat in a microwave for a few seconds and revive these tasty pieces of bread.

The pieces of bread can last up to 3 days in the refrigerator.  For a healthier taste, add flaxseed. Cheeses such as parmesan, gouda, and asiago are tasty alternatives.

Perfect for a snack or a side, these amazing cheese rolls are made with local ingredients and are delicious.

  • 1 Egg at room temperature
  • 1/3 cup Olive Oil

  • 1 1/2 cup Tapioca Flour

  • 1 teaspoon Kosher Salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon Sweet Paprika optional
  • 1 teaspoon Flaxseed Flour optional


  • Preheat oven at 400 degrees F. Using a cooking spray, grease mini muffins tins (24). Put all of the ingredients into a blender and pulse until smooth. Use a spatula to scrape the sides of the blender and pulse again if necessary Bake in the oven for 15 – 20 minutes, until all puffy and just lightly browned. Remove from oven and let cool on a rack for a few minutes. Eat while warm or save for later.


Ingredients must be at room temperature for best results. If using a different type of cheese, use a soft and tangy cheese.
Brazilian Cheese Bread requires – two mini muffins tins for a total 24 breads. I have also substituted 1/2 cup of Queso Fresco Cheese for 1/4 cup Havarti Cheese and 1/4 cup Queso Fresco Cheese. This mixture was more flavorful in my opinion. With Parmesan Cheese, more moisture is needed. Not a great substitute. Batter can be stored in refrigerator for up to a week. Breads can be stored in refrigerator in plastic container or freezer bag and reheated.
