Easy Brazilian Cheese Puffs


3 people made this

Simple recipe for super tasty puffs that just happen to also be gluten free. Brazilian cheese puffs are nice and chewy, a lot like Japanese mochi.

Serves: 6 

  • 1 egg
  • 160ml milk
  • 75ml canola oil
  • 170g tapioca flour
  • 130g Pecorino-Romano cheese

Preparation:15min  ›  Cook:20min  ›  Ready in:35min 

  1. Preheat oven to 190 degrees C. Grease a mini-muffin tin.
  2. Put all of the ingredients into a blender or food processor and pulse until well combined and smooth. You can use a spatula in between pulses to scrape down any bits that stick to the sides of the blender so that everything gets blended well. (At this point you can store the mixture in the fridge for up to a week.)
  3. Spoon mixture into muffin tin, filling almost to the top of each cup.
  4. Bake in the oven for 15 to 20 minutes, or until puffy and lightly browned.
  5. Remove from oven and let cool on a rack for a few minutes.


Best to eat while warm but you can save and reheat later.
