Brazilian Cheese Buns

Whenever we are at JEM, we will always drop by Provence Bakery to pick up some cheese buns... the ones with a chewy centre.

So when I showed the pictures and recipe from MummyMoo's blogpost, he brought me to Phoon Huat almost immediately to get a mini muffin mould so I could bake this on demand.

So bake I did.

It's really simple, and all you need to do mix all the ingredients, blend, pour then bake.

Lining up all the ingredients
Brazilian Cheese Buns
Adapted from: MummyMoo

  • 1 large egg
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 2/3 cup milk
  • 170 grams Tapioca flour
  • 50 grams cheddar cheese
  • 50 grams parmesan cheese
This recipe yields a softer bun texture, with a soft crust. Somewhat different to what you can find at Provence. I prefer a crisper crust, and I think the recipe from The Kitchn  will do the trick, although it requires more effort.

1. Preheat oven to 200 deg C.
2. Place all ingredients into a blender. Blend till combined, and until batter turns smooth. 
3. Pour batter into mini muffin tins. I managed yield 15 portions. 
4. Place into the oven and bake for 20 minutes. 

Into the oven goes the baking tray

Soft and chewy on the inside. Extremely addictive I must say!
