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.
The Brazilian Cheesy Bread recipe is from SimplyRecipes.com. The recipe is simple, quick and easy to make. The easiest part of the recipe is adding all the ingredients in a blender to mix and then in the muffins pan for baking. Isn’t that super!
Tapioca flour can be found in many supermarkets as well as Amazon.com.
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.
