    1 egg
    1/3 cup olive oil
    2/3 cup milk
    Scant 1 1/2 cups (170 grams) tapioca flour
    1/2 cup (packed, about 66 grams) grated cheese, your preference, though we got the best results from Mexican farmer's cheese - queso fresco
    1 teaspoon of salt (or more to taste)


Preheat oven to 400°F. Grease a mini-muffin tin. Put all of the ingredients into a blender and pulse until smooth. You may need to use a spatula to scrape down the sides of the blender so that everything gets blended well. At this point you can store the batter in the refrigerator for up to a week. Bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes, until all puffy and just lightly browned. Remove from oven and let cool on a rack for a few minutes.

Eat while warm or save to reheat later.

Note that Brazilian cheese bread is very chewy, a lot like Japanese mochi.

Serving Size: 16 mini rolls (make in mini muffin tins)

Number of Servings: 16
