Tried making this recipe this weekend: http://www.oliviascuisine.com/authentic-brazilian-cheese-bread/

They're supposed to be soft and fluffy. I don't know if its because I used a duck egg, or too much cheese, or baked them wrong, or what, but these are soft and chewy. Basically cheese in a crust.

Which would actually be awesome, only the recipe calls for mostly Parmesan, which isn't my favorite. It's fine as, say, a coating for Chicken Piccata, but if I'd known I was going to be eating gobs of melted cheese, I would've stuck with the mild gooey stuff.

Melissa,

These Tapioca flour cheese biscuits or bread are delicious .. I had eaten these for breakfast in Sao Paulo when I was there a few years ago ..  

I saw a wonderful and simple recipe on The  BBC Good Food Website ..  I think the milk and the Mozzarella perhaps made the biscuits too too wet ..

Take a look at the BBC Good Food Website, which has its nuances ..    

I am not  sure what went wrong with your Tapioca Flour Biscuits ..  

Try again and look for substitutes if you can find Brazilian Cheese ..  

Good luck.

They aren't bad, just not what I was expecting.

I think I found the link to the BBC recipe here:

https://www.bbcgoodfood.com/recipes/brazilian-cheese-bread-pao-de-queijo

The recipe does look good:

Quote Pão de Queijo
Brazilian cheese bread

By Jennifer Joyce


Ingredients

Oil or butter, for greasing
250ml full-fat milk
125g unsalted butter
1 tsp salt
300g tapioca flour
2 eggs
100g parmesan, grated

Heat the oven to 220C/200C fan/gas 7 (400/425F). Grease a baking sheet with oil or butter and set aside.

In a medium saucepan add the milk, butter and salt and bring to a boil. Remove from heat and add the tapioca flour. Stir it vigorously and let cool a little.

Pour the dough into a standing mixer or use a bowl and an electric hand whisk. Beat the dough until its cool. Beat the eggs in one at a time waiting until each one is completely incorporated before adding the next. When the dough is glossy and mixed add in the cheese. Beat again until mixed.

Spoon the dough onto the baking sheet in 1 tbsp balls, 5cm apart. Bake for 30 mins until crisp and golden. Remove from the oven and eat while still warm.

If I'm reading both recipes right, the only "major" difference is that the first recipe adds a generous amount of Mozzarella; perhaps that is the difference?

Tas,

This is the BBC Good Food Recipe ..  

Thank you for posting the link ..  

All my best for a lovely evening ..  

It is also a much simpler récipe too ..  

This is much closer to the ones I ate in Sao Paulo ..

Thanks!

And while the ones I made weren't quite what I expected, I discovered that they were delicious topped with a slice of pepperoni and more melty cheese.
