Brazilian Cheese Bread. Why you are so delicious?
Cheese bread is a typical Brazilian recipe from the state of Minas Gerais. Its origin is uncertain, it has been speculated that recipe has existed since the eighteenth century, but has become effectively popular in Brazil since the 1950s.
Although it is referred to as “bread”, cheese bread basically consists of a type of biscuit made from sweet or sour cassava flour AKA Tapioca flour, with eggs, salt, vegetable oil and cheese, with a soft and elastic consistency.
There are several different recipes where the ingredients and the type of cheese vary a lot – as well as the
end result. Some use sweet cassava, some sour, or even both. But what gives its main characteristic is
the fact of being made from cassava starch and some kind of cheeses available locally.
