These Pćo de Queijo (Brazilian Cheese Bread) are super delicious, irresistible savoury snacks. The whole family loves the mixture of crunchy crust with chewy insides. Very easy to whizz up.



1 egg
60 g olive oil
160 g milk
170 g tapioca flour
50 g grated mozzarella / tasty cheese
50 g grated parmesan cheese
1/2 tsp salt

1. Put all ingredients in TM. Speed 5, 5 secs. Scrape sides. Repeat.
2. Fill greased muffin tin 3/4 way.
3. Bake for 20 min in a preheated 200C oven, until puffy and golden brown.

If using Airfryer, preheat 160° 5 mins. 170° 7 mins. Turn the puffs upside down, and place bottoms up (yup! 😆) within the silicone moulds. Add 5 mins.

This will give you an even golden colour 😃

Tips:
I've used silicone cupcake moulds in the airfryer. I bake in 2 batches, 9 puffs per batch. Kmart sells the moulds at $2 for 6 pcs.

I usually have some in the freezer for quick snacks.

I don't think I have tapioca flour BZB, do you have to use it or can I substitute it with potato flour perhaps?  I don't need to cook GF so could I use ordinary flour?

Or could we mill some tapioca as I can't buy of the flour here?  Wonder if the TM would mill it fine enough?  ???

Judy, I'm not sure if you can sub the tapioca flour. It's the ingredient that makes it chewy. Then again, it could work. 😃

You can buy tapioca flour at Asian groceries. The one in my suburb sells a 500g pack at 90 cents.

Julie, I've not milled this flour before. Might be an interesting experiment 😄

Thanks for the link and the offer to source and send me some flour Judy.  :-*

I'm coming to Adelaide in May for a couple of nights, so if the tapioca doesn't mill down too well, I can look for some of the flour then.  Will def give it a try using Tenina's grind, rest, grind method. Will report back when I do.  ;D

Tapioca can generally be substituted for arrowroot :)

Tried baking with oven today. My oven can't go up to 200c, so I used 160c fan forced. The mini puffs took 20 mins. The regular sized ones took 30 mins to brown.

Prefer the airfried ones. Gives a better texture, but can't get uniform shapes.
