Gluten Free Brazilian Cheese Buns

Hot bread rolls from the pantry.

This gluten free bread recipe has been all the rage at every convention I have gone to for the past year. They smell marvelous and are immediately snapped and devoured on the spot. But, do I really want to pay that much for them? Knowing me the answer is uhhhh….no way !

Brazilian Cheese Buns

So here’s the gluten free bread recipe of those yummy little morsels that would be perfect for any party, with soup or just to eat fresh from the oven. Make sure to stock your pantry with tapioca flour and you can have these any time.


1/2 cup butter
1/3 cup milk
1/3 cup water
1 teaspoon of salt (or more to taste)
2 cups tapioca flour
2 tsp. minced garlic
2/3 cup parmesan cheese (fresh kind please)
2 eggs, beaten


Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

In a medium saucepan, place the butter, water, milk and salt and heat to a full boil (bubbles that keep coming no matter how much you stir).

Have your 2 cups of tapioca flour in a large mixing bowl at the ready. Pour the boiling mixture right over the top of the flour and start beating with an electric mixer. Beat on high until it becomes very smooth. This happens fast.

Then beat in the garlic and cheese. Now, check to see how hot the dough is. Stick your finger in there. If you can comfortable touch it without burning yourself (baby formula temp I call it) then you’re ready for the next step.

Keep your mixer going and slowly pour in the beaten eggs until everything is well combined.
Drop the mixture using a large cookie scoop (or make sure it’s golf ball size) and space them 1 ½” to 2” apart on the parchment.

Bake for 20 minutes, until they have freckles (the cheese browning here) and just turning brown. Take out of the oven and serve hot.

Makes 18 to 20 buns.

These reheat really well in your microwave. Just pop them in for 5 seconds at a time until hot.

Happy Baking!
