This is not a question--I just want to tell you that you are indeed, awesome! I found you on a search for vegan Brazilian Cheese Bread and found so many more goodies. Great job! Thank you! --Mindy from Anonymous
Thanks, Mindy! I really appreciate it- I’ve been cooking up a storm but not documenting it well, so I hope to have some updates to share soon- keep an eye out!
Hi, I want to ask because I cannot eat wheat I am always looking for gluten free vegan foods. ^^ I so badly LOVE your Pan de Yucca recipe! ;A; But I want to ask can I substitute the yucca flour (tapioca) for rice flour? I want to try different flours and because I already always have rice flour in my home (I make my own ^^b) I want to ask would it work out to use rice flour? I'm sure it'll taste different but generally I just want to expand my bread variety and I worry if this would work out. ;; from Anonymous
Hi there! I’m glad you like the pan de yuca / pão de queijo :)
I would try it with the tapioca/yuca/mandioca/cassava starch/flour (it has so many names!) if you can, because it provides such a unique chewy texture that I really haven’t encountered elsewhere.
I did some google searching and it seems some people have tried with rice flour (a glutinous, starchy type, like mochi would be even better) and succeeded, but know that the texture will be quite different! I’m sure they will still taste good, especially if you have potato or yucca to hold them together. Good luck, and let me know how it goes if you do try it!
