Brazilian Cheesy Bread

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 nephew and his friends. They devour most of them very quickly. 

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

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 second will revive these tasty pieces of bread.

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

  • 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.
