Brazilian cheese buns


I am following the recipe from The Domestic Man.

1 1/2 cups tapioca starch
1/4 cup cream
1/4 cup water
(I used 1/2 cup milk instead of cream and water combo)
1 tbsp butter
1/2 tsp salt
1 egg, beaten
1/2 cup grated hard cheese: parmesan, shard cheddar, etc.
(I used Parmesan and Mozeralla cheese).

– Preheat oven to 200 degrees C.
– Heat the milk, butter and salt in the pot until the butter melted.
– Put the tapioca starch in a large bowl, pour in the warm milk mixture and mix well. My  mixture becomes very sticky.

– Add in the beaten eggs to the mixture and kneed with hands. (My mixture is still in liquid form so I’m still mixing with my spatula, oh no, I think I messed up!)

– Add in the cheese and mix well.
I can’t roll it into balls, as my mixture is still very liquidly.

So I used a small muffin tray instead.

Then in they go into the oven for 15 mins. *finger cross*

I am surprised! The magic happened in the oven, puffed up my liquidly mixture into cute little balls.

Yield: 19 small buns

Once you start, you can’t stop! So cheesy and chewy!
Best eaten  when its warm. It became tough the next day.


Simply delicious!
