Chef John's Brazilian Cheese Bread (Pao de Queijo)
January 23, 2019

There will probably be a couple of questions that will come up a ton so I thought I would post the answers and perhaps keep people from hesitating to make the recipe. First, he uses only one egg in the video but the recipe calls for two. The reason is that for the video he only made 1/2 batch. It's easy to miss that part. Second, you can't substitute ANYTHING for the tapioca flour/starch (both names are used on packaging, however, the product is exactly the same. Names are interchangeable) Having said that, this recipe is by far the easiest recipe I have ever made vs. the output. Never have I had so many compliments and pleas to make more for a recipe that required only 4-7 minutes of EASY prep. I used my KitchenAid mixer with the paddle attachment but did not vary anything else. These are amazing!
